Federal Programs for Students

Summer Language Bursary Program

This program provides bursaries to Canadian students, to study either English or French as a second language at participating post-secondary schools across Canada. The program involves a five-week immersion course, featuring a mix of in-class instruction and community cultural events. Students are either placed in a college, university or CEGEP residence, or with a family for the duration of the program. Accommodation and meal expenses are covered by the bursary.

Canadian students who have completed at least grade 11 (or secondaire V in Quebec), and who are enrolled as a full-time student for at least one semester, are eligible to apply for the Summer Language Bursary Program.
