Saskatchewan – Jilin Scholarship 2016/2017
Building on the success of our International Faculty Mobility Program we are pleased to announce the opening for applications for the 2016/2017 cycle of the Saskatchewan – Jilin Scholarship.
The Saskatchewan – Jilin Scholarship was established between the Government of Saskatchewan (Canada) and the People’s Government of Jilin Province (China) to forge stronger relations through collaboration and information sharing on research and development and to facilitate joint educational exchange and cooperation.
The Saskatchewan – Jilin Scholarship should be utilized in accordance with the Saskatchewan Ministry of Advanced Education’s Plan for Growth (in ways deemed appropriate), with the following objectives as priority:
I. Profile Saskatchewan and Saskatchewan’s education advantage
II. Increase research collaboration
III. Increase the study of Chinese language and culture by Saskatchewan students
IV. Encourage more Saskatchewan students to obtain overseas experience in China
We currently have 4 scholarships available at $2,500 each. These scholarships are specifically designated to support faculty members with their international activities and strategies, within the bounds of the Ministry’s Plan for Growth.
The application deadline is April 15, 2016 and successful candidates will be notified by April 30, 2016.
I would appreciate you circulating this announcement to your faculty members and encouraging them to apply for the scholarship and to contact our office to ensure that faculty members receive the support to carry out their faculty mobility initiatives to completion.
