Prizes & contests
The President's International Experience Award is a $1500 award available to eligible full-time undergraduate students who were recipients of the President’s Scholarship of Distinction and are interested in participating in an international study or work experience.
You must have received the President's Scholarship of Distinction Entrance Scholarship.
You must have completed Year One with a cumulative average of at least 80%.
You must be a continuing full-time undergraduate student registered with the University of Waterloo.
You must be participating in an international study experience or an international work/volunteer experience that is of sufficient duration (normally minimum of one month). Consideration may be given to shorter study or work plans that provide intense, high-quality experience with relevant value to your field of study, or one that is required by your program.
You remain eligible to apply for other merit- or need-based awards in support of your international experience; however, this award will be considered a resource to your budget.
You may claim two President’s International Experience Awards rather than one each of this award and the President’s Research Award, provided they are for two distinct international experiences, taking place during two separate terms.
