Fully-Funded | Canada-Asia Young Professionals Scholarship Program | 2023

The Canada-Asia Young Professionals Fellowship Program 2023 is now accepting applications. For eight to ten current students and young professionals between the ages of 22 and 30 who have prior knowledge of contemporary Asia and a desire in bettering Canada’s connections with the nations and peoples of that region, this nine-month, non-resident programme is available.

Participants will examine Southeast Asia and its expanding significance to Canada in greater detail, in addition to the Asia Pacific region as a whole, which will get some of the fellowship’s attention. Twice a month, fellows meet virtually for 60 minutes (with breaks during major holidays).

Application Deadline: There is no deadline announced for this scholarship by the organizers yet.
