Following very successful Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarships program (QES) calls for proposals in 2014, 2016 and 2017, Universities Canada is pleased to announce a fourth call for proposals.
Thanks to funding provided by The Waugh Family Foundation, QES 2019 will support projects in Latin America and the Caribbean that focus on education, social services and health. Canadian universities are invited to submit multi-year project proposals seeking funding of up to $300 thousand CAD. Each Canadian university may submit one proposal to the 2019 competition. Up to $1,800,000 CAD is available through this competition.
Projects will support international internships for Canadian students and/or scholarships for incoming international graduate students. The program will require all scholars to participate in leadership development and community engagement activities and in the network of Queen Elizabeth Scholars.
