- Global Exchange scholarships
Global Exchange Scholarships are provided by the University to assist with some of the costs of the exchange semester. The scholarships are allocated according to several criteria including a student’s GPA/WAM, destination and length of exchange. You do not need to apply as you will automatically be considered for this scholarship when you apply for Global Exchange. However, this is not a guarantee of a scholarship.
