Corbett Exchange Scholars Program

Corbett Virtual Exchange Program

When the Canada-U.S border closed indefinitely in 2020, the Corbett Exchange Program was forced to adjust. We developed an innovative virtual exchange program to give students from the Universities of Washington, British Columbia, and Victoria the opportunity to connect through shared learning and social experiences. Students in the virtual program participated in:

  • Expert-led workshops on key cross-border issues
  • Cohort-building social hours
  • Virtual city tours and events
  • Final projects and research on a cross-border topic of their choosing

Upon completion of the program, students received a $2,000 award for their participation.

Note about study abroad and COVID-19: All students selected for the in-person Corbett Exchange Program are automatically considered for the virtual program, if travel is restricted. Applicants to the Killam Fellowship will also be considered. No additional application is required for the virtual program.
