Funding opportunities

Funding image - coins

When you’re on a student budget, a bit of financial support can sometimes make all the difference. This page lists some of the funding options available as you explore potential jobs.

Co-op funding

The UVic Co-op Program offers funding options for students who take part in co-operative education.

Moving expenses

Moving expenses

If you’re a full-time co-op student at UVic, you can claim certain costs of your relocation for co-op work placements on your income tax. The job location must be more than 40 kilometres from Victoria. To claim these costs, complete a T1-M Claim for Moving Expenses Form from Revenue Canada.

Graham Branton Endowment Award

Graham Branton Endowment Award

Only registered co-op students are eligible for funding through the Graham Branton Endowment, Fund, which supports student placements—usually international ones in developing countries—that provide excellent learning opportunities but little remuneration.

To apply, review the guidelines and download the application form or complete our online application form. Deadline is usually the third week of the third month of the term before the co-op placement.

The fund was established in 1996 in memory of Dr. Graham Branton who was instrumental in the growth of the University of Victoria’s Co-operative Education Program.

Thouvenelle Co-op Scholarship

Thouvenelle Co-op Scholarship

UVic Co-op awards the Thouvenelle scholarship to students in work terms related to community development or service learning. Eligibility is based on the nature of the work term, your grade-point average and financial need. No application is required—we’ll contact you if you are selected for this scholarship.
