will award up to 1600 new scholarships for Latin American and Caribbean students to pursue studies or research in Canada.
The ELAP will support human capital development and a new generation of leaders in the Americas while strengthening linkages between Canadian institutions and those in the region.
The first round of ELAP scholarships will be launched Monday, April 27 for study or research commencing in the Fall of 2009.
The scholarships will be facilitated through inter-institutional exchange agreements and will provide students with the opportunity to undertake study or research at Canadian universities and colleges. Recipients will remain students of their home institutions during this exchange. In addition, the ELAP will offer a study tour component to selected students to expose them to Canadian governance, business and civil society in key priority areas. Funding will also be available for “collaboration missions” by academic leaders from the region to promote partnerships with Canadian post-secondary institutions.
Interested institutions and students should consult www.scholarships.gc.ca/elap or contact scholarships-bourses
