Minding the GAP: Increasing International Travel Equity and Access for Canadian Students

Memorial University of Newfoundland creates a needs-based, equitable scholarship program for study abroad which prioritizes students who are low income, Indigenous and have accessibility needs. A Global Ambassadors Program fully realizes the transformational experience that international learning abroad can provide, including access to the latest safety and support tools available. MUN creates a “Launchpad” experience at its Harlow Campus in England to facilitate an immersive, team-building, safe-space entry into global travel for its study abroad cohorts. MUN enhances student mobility by 16% with existing partners in New Zealand (Indigenous-specific exchange), Malaysia, China and India.
