Explore bursary for Nunavut students

If you are a full-time grade 11, 12 and post-secondary student, the Department of Education wants you to apply for a $2,200 bursary through the Government of Canada’s Explore program!

Explore is a five-week intensive French language-immersion program offered in the spring or summer. Participants from Nunavut can have their travel fees reimbursed and can be granted five credits for their participation in the program.

Participants also receive a bursary that covers tuition fees for the program, instructional materials, meals and accommodations, workshops and other mandatory activities. The educational institution you will be attending receives the bursary directly. Bursaries are awarded by random draw.

The application deadline is February 15, 2018. For more information, including who is eligible, please contact Nunavut’s territorial coordinator, Josianne Beaumont, at 867-975-5652 or
