The Global Skills Opportunity Award is funded by the Government of Canada’s Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program through Employment and Social Development Canada (ESDC) in partnership with British Columbia Institute of Technology, and is administered jointly by Universities Canada and Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan). While open to all Canadian or Permanent Residents, the program targets underrepresented students who identify as Indigenous, low-income students, and students with disabilities. To assist BCIT students with the cost of study or work integrated learning abroad, selected participants may be eligible to receive up to CAD $10,000.00 per student. The amount of funding you qualify for is determined based on financial need, the length of your international experience, and destination costs.
This funding can be put towards the BCIT SoB+M summer field schools in 2023 which can sometimes count for elective credit.
