Additional funding from the Government of Canada will provide more opportunities for Canadian faculty to teach or conduct research abroad, and for international students to complete a program at a Canadian postsecondary institution. This announcement aligns with the key objectives of Canada’s new International Education Strategy.
The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) will administer the two programs as part of the existing suite of scholarships under the Global Affairs Canada International Scholarships Program.
CBIE is proud to play this important role in the implementation of the International Education Strategy. This is an opportunity to contribute to the advancement of internationalization efforts of Canadian education institutions and the diversification of Canada’s education partnerships around the world.
The Faculty Mobility Program, now in its second year, is a short-term grant to Canadian professors and researchers to teach or conduct research in Latin America and the Caribbean. It aims to increase the number of institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian, Latin American and Caribbean postsecondary institutions.
The Study in Canada Scholarships program is a brand new program for Canadian post-secondary institutions to welcome a new cohort of international students from diverse regions worldwide this fall. The program aims to diversify and enrich Canada’s education engagement with a broad range of partners, to support Canadian institutions’ internationalization objectives, strengthen bilateral ties, and complement Canada’s international trade diversification efforts.
“As the principal administrator of the program, CBIE welcomes this new chapter in its partnership with Global Affairs Canada,” says Larissa Bezo, CBIE’s president and CEO. “As the national voice for international education in Canada, CBIE recognizes the importance of two-way mobility programs to support innovative partnerships, global exchange, and to ensure our country’s future prosperity.”
CBIE has been the principal administrator of the Global Affairs Canada International Scholarships Program since 2005. CBIE provides customized management of scholarship programs that develop global citizens and administers scholarships on behalf of Canadian government departments, private and public sector organizations and other countries around the world.
