Corbett Exchange Scholars Program

The Corbett Exchange is intended to build a community of students committed to strengthening mutual understanding of Canada and the US in the Pacific Northwest. Undergraduate and graduate students from any field of study are welcome to participate in the exchange program.

Students from the University of Washington will receive $10,000 to spend an academic year at either the University of British Columbia (UBC) or the University of Victoria (UVic), or $5,000 per semester.

Students from UBC and UVic will receive $12,000 to attend the University of Washington for an academic year, or $4,000 per quarter.

Note about study abroad and COVID-19: We understand the continually changing situation for study abroad. If in-person exchange is not available during the next academic year, we are pleased to offer a virtual exchange with an accompanying award of $2,000.

Applications for 2022-2023 due January 15, 2022
