When participating in this experience, undergraduate students may be eligible for funding support through ONE of the sources – the Scholarship for Short-Term Study Abroad Programmes or the Short-Term Abroad Allowance with reference to the CGPA. Need-based government sponsorship may also be applicable for local students with financial need.

 

In all the merit-based funding provided by the Registry offices in support of study abroad, each student is only eligible to receive the value that equals the largest award throughout his/her undergraduate studies. Should a student receive more than one award, he/she may be required to return the prior award to the University. This is to ensure that scholarship funds benefit more than a small number of students.
