Algonquin Receives $500,000 from the Global Skills Opportunity Program

November 10, 2021
Through the Global Skills Opportunity Program, Algonquin College has been awarded $500,000 to support the participation of our learners in international mobility opportunities, with funding through March 2025. This funding will provide fully funded, for credit, international mobility opportunities for an estimated 85 Algonquin College students with domestic or permanent resident status. Algonquin will leverage many of our existing international partners to provide mobility opportunities for Algonquin students. In addition to the opportunities provided directly to our students, this will help us to provide reciprocity to partners who send us students for short term programming while also deepening our existing international partnerships. The project is funded by Global Skills Opportunity, the Government of Canada’s Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program.
