Guidelines

The Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) scholarships are facilitated through institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and Latin American or Caribbean institutions. These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutions and universities. Students or researchers, hereby referred to as “candidates”, remain registered as full-time students in their home institution during this exchange.

Canadian post-secondary institutions

Canadian institutions are:

  • responsible for submitting applications on behalf of eligible candidates from institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean; and
  • encouraged to promote this scholarship opportunity to faculty and staff members, as well as to partner institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Canadian institutions with successful candidates:

  • should identify a single person responsible for the administration of the contribution agreement and another person with delegated signing authority; and
  • will receive contribution funding from Global Affairs Canada to disburse as scholarships to recipients.

Non-Canadian candidates

Candidates interested in this scholarship program should contact their home institution to:

  • make their interest known;
  • find out if there is an existing institutional collaboration or exchange agreement with a Canadian institution; and
  • request information about the application process and selection criteria specific to the Canadian institution.

Selected candidates are encouraged to:

  • ensure that they fulfill the requirements of the Canadian institution including academic requirements and language proficiency;
  • initiate the process for the transfer of credits to their home institution as soon as their Canadian courses have been identified;
  • follow the procedures of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada as outlined by the Canadian institution (generally a study permit is required for course work and a work permit is required for research); and
  • contact alumni of the program through their home institution for advice and a local perspective on the scholarship experience.
