Applications are currently being received for the Government of Quebec and AUF Scholarships. AUF Americas launch the call for applications within the framework of the Agreement signed between the AUF (Association of Francophone Universities) and the Government of Quebec in terms of student mobility at the university level.

This Quebec government scholarship program aims to allow foreign students who have already been admitted to French-speaking universities in Quebec for studies at the master’s level and PhD, to benefit from an exemption from additional tuition fees and to benefit from the same tuition fees as Quebec students at the university level.

In addition, selected students will benefit from a return air ticket, a first-year installation bonus, and an annual financial allowance from the AUF. The AUF aims to strengthen the scientific Francophonie by promoting solidarity through student mobility, in order to improve scientific capacities and research establishments from the “South” which are members of the AUF.
