IT IS FOR YOUR INFORMATION ONLY. The University Senate, acting on behalf of generous benefactors and donors to the University, bestows academic awards on entering, in-course and graduating students to encourage and recognize high levels of scholarship. In recognizing such scholastic achievement, the University requires all recipients of academic awards to fulfill a set of general conditions, in addition to meeting the particular terms attached to individual academic awards. The general conditions and terms have been established to ensure equity in competition and a high academic standing. Any interpretation of the conditions attaching to academic awards is solely the prerogative of the Undergraduate Council. GENERAL CONDITIONS FOR TRAVEL & EXCHANGE AWARDS These awards are based on competition across the University or within a Faculty or program. To be eligible, students are required to submit an application to their Faculty/Academic Area by February 28. The award numbers in this group begin with a "35" (e.g. 35056). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. These awards, which are granted in March, are provided exclusively for first baccalaureate degree students registered full-time qualifying on the basis of work included at the May review (or deferred examinations resulting therefrom), in other than their graduating session. The previous Summer grades and the current grades from Term 1 of the current session are also considered. Students must be registered in 24-units at the time of application and must normally remain registered in 24-units during the Fall/Winter session immediately following the travel or exchange for which the award was given. Students must have obtained a Cumulative Average of 8.0 as a full-time student and had no failures in the previous Fall/Winter session to be considered. Students normally participate in exchange programs in their third year. Approval of their Associate Dean/Director is required. Students participating in summer travel must have completed a minimum of 36 units at McMaster at the time of application. (e.g. 24 units in Level I and at least 12 units in Term 1 of the current Fall/Winter Session.) Travel/Exchange scholarship funding cheques will be issued to students in March to assist with travel expenses. Students who make the decision not to travel as per their application must return the funds to the University. Students choosing to withdraw after the May review will retain the transcript notation but forfeit the monetary benefit. Students who transfer to graduate may retain the monetary benefit. Students are required to submit a report of their travel experience by November 1st following their return to study to the Awards Officer in the Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships. The University reserves the right not to grant an award in the absence of a suitable candidate, and to limit the number of awards when there are too few suitable candidates. The University also reserves the right to withdraw, or amend the terms of, any award, and to suspend granting of an award or to adjust the stated value of an award in years in which insufficient investment income is available due to fluctuations in investment markets. Students who are named to receive a Travel or Exchange Scholarship will be notified by e-mail by the end of March. An award recipient who changes travel plans must inform the Office of Student Financial Aid & Scholarships in writing. A change in travel plans may affect eligibility to retain the award.
