Award description at a glance:
    • This new program was established by the Government of Canada. Its aim is to encourage young English-speaking students to pursue their postsecondary studies in French. The objective is simple: Allow a greater number of English-speaking Canadians to become bilingual. 

    To receive a bursary for postsecondary studies in French as a second language, one must:

    • Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada; 
    • Have English as the first official language spoken; 
    • Have completed their secondary school studies in an English-language institution and graduated from this institution; 
    • Have reached the postsecondary level of education; 
    • Study full time in a Canadian institution during the current year; 
    • Be enrolled in the first year of a postsecondary study program in French; 
    • Be at least 17 years old on the first day of class; 
    • Demonstrate that they have sufficient knowledge of French to be able to study in that language. A transcript, attesting to having taken courses in French at the secondary school or college or university level in Canada for a minimum of two years, will be required; 
    • Intend to pursue full-time studies in a college or undergraduate university program in Canada, to take at least 50% of their courses and participate in related activities (placements and training activities in the community) in French. 

    Note: Special consideration will be given to students facing financial challenges and those who come from under-represented groups.

Its aim is to encourage young English-speaking students to pursue their postsecondary studies in French.
