Bishop’s University Scholarship Renewal

A student on a recognized Bishop’s academic exchange must complete 30 credits (or equivalent determined by the Divisional Dean) at the exchange institution to be eligible for scholarships at Bishop’s upon their return. Scholarships will be awarded based on the rules and regulations found in the Academic Calendar.

Loans, bursaries, awards and scholarships are tenable during an exchange providing that students do not take an academic semester off prior to leaving on exchange.
