February 5, 2020 – Global Affairs Canada launches its 2020-2021 Student Exchange Programs for Latin American and Caribbean citizens wishing to study, conduct research or undertake professional development in Canada.
The 650 short-term exchange scholarships being offered will promote partnerships, student mobility and research collaborations between Canadian and Latin American and Caribbean post-secondary institutions.
Canadian post-secondary institutions can now submit scholarship applications on behalf of students, faculty and international liaison officers/managers from eligible countries by March 30, 2020 (Deadline extended: April 20, 2020). Only applications submitted directly by Canadian post-secondary institutions will be considered.
Interested candidates are invited to contact their home institution’s international office to learn about institutional partnerships and collaborations with Canadian institutions.
