The call for applications to the Global Affairs Canada Faculty Mobility for Partnership Building Program, sponsored by Global Affairs Canada, is now open for short-term stays launched between April 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023.
Funding up to CAD 7,000 is available for Canadian faculty to visit a partner institution in Latin America and the Carribean, for the purpose of developing or strengthening institutional collaborations. Full details can be found at the Global Affairs Canada website: https://www.educanada.ca/scholarships-bourses/can/institutions/elap_faculty-pfla_professeurs.aspx?lang=eng
Applications must be submitted through the home university’s approved representative. The application deadline is December 2, 2021, however, Canadian universities may have earlier internal deadlines.
The CALAREO Consortium has received a grant to conduct a survey of students at member universities about challenges they face in participating in outbound mobility, such as study abroad or international research internships. The survey will examine individual and institutional barriers from the students’ perspective. A third objective of the survey is to understand student perceptions of Latin America as an academic destination. Results will be used to strengthen program supports and develop a communication strategy for outbound opportunities to Latin America. This project is funded by the Government of Canada’s Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program.
