International Scholarships are open to BC post-secondary students studying abroad. These scholarships are for programs that are either:

  1. a formal part of a credential program at a student’s home institution or carry academic credit recognized by their home institution; or
  2. an experiential learning opportunity, typically less than four months in length, involving language acquisition and/or cultural training. (It is not necessary for the program to carry academic credit.)

Starting in 2023 Langara will be offering study, volunteer, and work abroad opportunities that may meet the requirements for the One World International Scholarship program. Learn more about study abroad and work abroad.
