The India Connect Program is the first in a series of country-specific scholarship programs that are part of a larger Asia Connect Program coordinated by the Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada (AFP Canada). Through this partnership, the APF Canada and Langara College Foundation will award a scholarship, worth $10,000, to two students who are interested in gaining work experience in India.
This current application is the second opportunity for Langara students to apply. Our first successful cohort of Spring 2018 saw co-op students, Lucy Morrow and Willy Sin successfully completed their work terms in New Delhi, India.
Applications for the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 work terms are now open. Selected students will complete their work term with Optimus Information Inc., in an experience designed to introduce the students to India’s rapidly growing and tech-savvy economy.
The application deadline is June 12, 2019 for Fall 2019. A second application deadline for Spring 2020 is October 15, 2019. Staff and faculty are encouraged to reach out to students who they think may be suitable candidates, and to encourage them to apply.
