International Student Quarantine Bursary

The University of Lethbridge recognizes the additional expense the 3-day mandatory hotel quarantine places on arriving international students. The International Student Quarantine Bursary is intended to assist University of Lethbridge students to meet the hotel quarantine requirement to be available for in-person experiences at our Calgary or Lethbridge campuses. The bursary is open to new and continuing undergraduate and graduate international students (excluding exchange and ELI students) enrolled in full-time studies at the University of Lethbridge in either the Summer 2021 or Fall 2021 terms. Students must have traveled to Canada by air after the federal 3-day mandatory hotel stopover measure was implemented on February 21, 2021. Students must have submitted the required Quarantine Plan to the International Office prior to travelling to Canada to be eligible.

The bursary is available to students as long as the Order-in-Council for the 3-day mandatory hotel stopover measure is in effect. Application for the bursary will cease 2 months after the Order-in-Council is lifted.

Payment of the bursary will be made to the student account upon confirmation of full-time enrolment at the University of Lethbridge and relocation to Canada. Students may only receive this bursary once.

Eligible students must have:

  • travelled to Canada by air after February 21, 2021,
