British Columbia International Education Scholarship Program
The $150,000 British Columbia International Education Scholarship Program will benefit 120 international students from China, Japan and South Korea.
Under the program the ministry will award forty students from each country with a $1250 scholarship, totalling $50,000 to study in B.C.
This will support
- 20 students to attend schools at the kindergarten to Grade 12 level
- 20 students to attend post-secondary institutions
The scholarship will not only benefit international students, B.C. students gain as well through a more diverse learning environment, ideas and experiences from their international classmates.
This program builds on the Province’s existing collaborative relationships in education with China, Japan and South Korea, which are all priority partners under B.C.’s International Education Strategy.
