When participating in this experience, you 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. Whether you are applicable for the Scholarship or Allowance will be determined by your CGPA. Should you be under financial need, need-based government sponsorship may also be applicable.
