Gain international skills. This is your ticket.

Through the Global Skills Opportunity program, the Government of Canada is funding different Student Mobility Projects at the University of Lethbridge. We want our students, especially underrepresented students, to take advantage of international learning experiences and to develop important intercultural skills.

Through this program, students who face barriers to participation, especially Indigenous students, students with financial needs and those with disabilities, are funded to participate in international learning opportunities both at home and abroad.

Add intercultural competency, language fluency and technical knowledge to your resume.

You can receive up to $10,000 for an in-person experience abroad. Learn more!
