While eligibility requirements vary slightly between the CAGFIL and the EAGA, a single application and adjudication process will be used for both awards and the source of funding—CAGFIL or EAGA—will be determined during the selection process (see below).

The total value of the funding awarded to a group-based program will be based on the duration of the abroad program and the number of students participating. The total award granted will be calculated using the following per-student formula, for up to 8 months:
> $750 for Month 1 (or portion thereof)
> $500 per month for Months 2 and 3 (if applicable)
> $400 per month for Months 4 through 8 (if applicable)
Note: If a program is funded under the CAGFIL grant ($750* per student) but UAlberta students would have received more funding through the Education Abroad Group Award, these students will be topped up from EAGA funds (eg. programs that are longer than a month and UAlberta students who don't meet CAGFIL funding criteria).
*The Ministry Advanced Education and Technology is considering increasing the amount of each CAGFIL award.
