Returning Student Scholarships

Returning Students

Financial support and scholarships are available to students who are returning to King’s as well. Transfer students are eligible for these scholarships after they have completed a full year of study at King’s.

In-course scholarships 

King’s has a strong commitment to providing in-course scholarships based on university-level achievement. You’ll be automatically considered for scholarships at the end of each academic year.  Amounts will vary, but normally range from $1,000 to $4,000, and are provided through gifts, bequests and endowments, as well as from the college’s operating funds. You will be notified of any in-course scholarship you have been awarded during the summer and it will be reflected on your statement.

The John Godfrey Travelling Scholarship 

This scholarship supports King’s students who are pursuing education or development projects in a developing country, or helps students from developing countries attend King’s. A total of $3,900 is available to be awarded each year. To be considered for this award, apply by writing to the King’s registrar before March 15. The letter of application should include a description of your intended activities in relation to a developing country.

Study/Work International Fund (SWIF)

The Study/Work International Fund (SWIF) provides funding to King’s students in financial need who wish to undertake an international placement as part of their academic programme. Students should apply at least one month (preferably four to six weeks) prior to departure to allow enough time for review and processing.  Read more about SWIF here. <link currently takes students to Dal Ancillary Services>
