Where can I go?
This program seeks to diversify study/work-abroad destination countries and will provide funding for exchanges to non-traditional countries. Non-traditional countries refer to all countries other than the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Australia, where many Canadian students already opt to work and study. If you are an indigenous student, a low-income student or students with disabilities, you can go anywhere, including non-traditional countries.
Am I eligible for funding?
Funded Global Skills Opportunity projects are open to all Canadian students registered full time in undergraduate programs at the University of Lethbridge, but will prioritize underrepresented students (Indigenous students, students with financial need and those with disabilities).
You must meet these requirements to be eligible:
- Be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.
- Be registered in full-time studies and be in good standing.
- Be 18 years of age or older.
International students are ineligible for funding.
