Current Opportunities

EDC International Business Scholarships Undergraduate students interested in international business. Additional funding for students in programs which combine business with environmental or sustainability studies. For all scholarship opportunities, remember to check your eligibility for funding with the Financial Aid Office at your local campus.

Specialized Exchange Programs Specialized exchange programs are exchange programs with financial supports for students, normally supported by additional funding such as government or industry-supported programs. Students are advised to contact with the faculty member designated for the program to explore funding eligibility. Funding typically includes support for travel and accommodation.


Students interested in exchange programs, short-term study abroad, internships, practicums and co-op programs may be eligible to apply for or continue their current StudentAid BC funding to study overseas. No matter which study abroad opportunity you are interested in, it is important to check your eligibility for funding with Doris Funk, Financial Aid officer, Comox Valley Campus.

  • Exchange programs Dates of exchange programs do not always match NIC enrollment dates. Your student loan application requires a separate appendix that the Financial Aid Office must complete.
  • Short-term Study Abroad, Intern, Practicum, and Co-op programs The Financial Aid office will be able to advise you on whether your program qualifies for StudentAid BC. Eligible students must be enrolled in at least 60% (40% for students with permanent disabilities) of a full-time course load for credit, for a period of at least 12 consecutive weeks.

Note: If you are currently receiving StudentAid BC funding, you may need to complete a Reassessment form (Appendix 7) to extend your end date. It is important to submit this form to the Financial Aid Office early to ensure that additional funds are received by the field school payment deadlines. Reassessment of applications usually takes 4 to 6 weeks. If you are not currently receiving StudentAid BC funding, and need financial assistance, you should apply as soon as possible in order to determine your eligibility for funding.
