January 31, 2018 – Global Affairs Canada launches its 2018-2019 Student Exchange Program for Latin American and Caribbean citizens wishing to study, to conduct research or to 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 academic institutions can now submit scholarship applications on behalf of students, faculty and international liaison officers/managers from eligible countries by April 17, 2018. 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. Home institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean will then provide the eligible candidates’ documentation to the Canadian institutions.
For full program and application details, visit each scholarship program’s guidelines page.
