Montreal-Gaspé Collaborative Scholarship

Would you like to study in the Gaspésie for a semester?

The Montreal-Gaspé Collaborative Scholarship is offering you this possibility!

Now in its fifth year, look at what past participants  have said about their semester "away":   

The  Montreal-Gaspé Collaborative Scholarship gave me … a three minute commute to class;  a new appreciation of the natural world;  fresh air;  an incredible environment of sea, mountains and forest; freedom;  responsibility;  the chance to learn how to budget my money and time;  time to think;  the opportunity to explore a new region of Quebec;  a break from family and friends for awhile …

Soo Yun Cho (Vanier) and Teneille Arnott (John Abobott) talk about their experience at the Gaspé Cegep at 5.59 min. 

Vanier College has posted video interviews with four Vanier students, on it's VanierTV website.  Click here for access:  

 

Who is eligible?

Students presently enrolled in pre-university Natural Science and Social Science programs at Dawson, John Abbot, Vanier and Cégep du Vieux Montreal are invited to apply for the Montreal-Gaspé Collaborative Scholarship, through their home colleges.  This one-semester scholarship provides financial support for Montreal students who would like to experience a semester in the Gaspésie, by the sea.  The scholarship covers two round-trips from Montreal to Gaspé and a room in residence for a semester.  Students are offered activities in and around the region which could include hiking in Park Forillon, a trip to Percé Rock, dog sledding, ice fishing, free shuttles to the local ski centre …
