International Research Travel
Graduate students who have strong reasons to undertake research or data collection abroad and have secured an exemption to travel. Students are eligible for $1,000 per academic year.

USask Student Travel Award

The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance to full-time undergraduate and graduate students who are participating in a conference, traveling outside of Saskatchewan to obtain a visa or study permit to study abroad, competition or extra-curricular (not for credit) activities off-campus in Canada or abroad. Please note that if you are planning to participate in an academic study abroad program, you should submit an application for the Global Engagement Scholarship instead.

Applications must be submitted no later than one month before the start date of the planned activity, with the exception of trips to obtain a visa or study permit to study abroad. Due to a high number of applicants, all applications will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Only complete applications will be accepted. Students are eligible to receive one Student Travel Award every 12 months. Please read the Terms and Conditions in the application portal for more information.

NOTE: Due to COVID-19 and suspension of student travel, ISSAC is currently not accepting applications (online application portal is temporarily closed). The portal will be reopened once international travel suspensions are lifted.
