CBIE 2021 Regional Meetings Bursaries

The Canadian Bureau for International Education is pleased to award thirty (30) bursaries to new and emerging leaders in the field of international education to attend the CBIE Regional Meetings (Virtual).


Ten (10) bursaries will be awarded for each of the following regional conferences: Ontario (June 7th to 11th, 2021), Western (June 15, 2021), and Atlantic (June 3rd to 4th, 2021). The bursary covers the full conference registration fee.

Participation from an audience of new professionals is a critical measure of the success of our conferences. The purpose of the bursary is to encourage participation from these professionals. We believe this inclusion is beneficial to everyone involved.

Making our conferences accessible to the new professionals among our membership is a continuous learning process. We remain open to suggestions and recommendations and are seeking expert advice on the matter.

  • Be a current employee of a CBIE Member Institution;
  • Have less than three (3) years working experience in the International Education Sector;
  • Have not previously attended a CBIE regional conference; and

Applications must be received by 11:59 pm (EDT) on May 16th, 2021.

Respecting the national scope of CBIE’s mandate, the bursaries were awarded based on the representation of all educational levels (K-12, school boards, CEGEPs, colleges, and universities), geographical diversity, and linguistic representation of both official languages of Canada. Bursary recipients will be notified via email.
