McGill International Experience Awards

The McGill International Experience Awards (MIEA) were established in 2013 through a donation by Joseph Schull and Anna Yang. The MIEA includes the Schull Yang International Experience Awards and other awards supported by other donors and matched by Joseph Schull and Anna Yang.

The MIEA provides students with the opportunity to study abroad. Students are able to participate in academic activities that can range in length from one semester to a full academic year, including internships and field research trips, and courses abroad.
