The German-Canadian Centre for Innovation and Research (GCCIR) is happy to announce the launch of the GCCIR Experience Abroad Award, available exclusively to Campus Saint-Jean students. The Campus Saint-Jean is the only French-speaking Campus in Western Canada, and is part of the University of Alberta. The official announcement occurred at the Campus Saint-Jean’s “Thank-a-thon” on March 14, 2017. This event provided an opportunity for students to acknowledge the donors behind the many awards made available to them.
The GCCIR Experience Abroad Award is intended to support students in gaining research-based study or work experience in France. Business and/or Science students enrolled at Campus Saint-Jean will have the opportunity to receive a grant of $2,500 CAD. There is one award available each year, and the deadline for this year’s applications is April 15th, 2017.
Since 2016, the GCCIR has been mandated by the Albertan Ministry of Economic Development and Trade (EDT) to manage the Alberta-Canada-France Joint Industrial R&D Projects program.
With this Experience Abroad Award, the GCCIR aims to further strengthen the connection between Alberta and France through research-based alliances and student experiences.
