The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee (QEIIDJ) Scholarship Program

The Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee (QEIIDJ or QE) Scholarship Program is a national scholarship program for student mobility between Canada and the countries of the Commonwealth. The University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) is pleased to offer scholarship opportunities to its students through this prestigious program.

The QEIIDJ Scholarship Program is a partnership of Universities Canada, Community Foundations of Canada, and the Rideau Hall Foundation. It is made possible with financial support from the Government of Canada, provincial governments and the private sector. 

Up to 54 UOIT students will participate as Queen Elizabeth Scholars through outbound exchanges to our partners in Commonwealth countries or through scholarships for international students from the Commonwealth to study in master’s programs at UOIT.

The QE Scholarship Program provides opportunities for upper-year undergraduates to gain international experience as a part of their studies at UOIT. The program provides scholarships of up to $6,000 for an experiential-learning placement with a UOIT partner in a Commonwealth country. Placements last a minimum of three months and are typically organized during the summer. Placement opportunities are developed with the faculties, and placement availability is subject to the availability of opportunities with partners, as well as program funding. All QE Scholars must participate in on-campus activities before and after the placement, as a condition of the scholarship.

Placement opportunities are available in Singapore and Trinidad and Tobago for FBIT undergraduate students.

The QEIIDJ Scholarships will be co-ordinated through the UOIT International office. For more information on eligibility requirements and opportunities for graduate students, please visit UOIT International’s QEIIDJ web page.
