To support the retention or the return of bilingual health and social services professionals in our region, Heritage Lower St. Lawrence (HLSL), in collaboration with McGill University via the Dialogue Program, is launching a call for applications for bursaries offered to students who will pursue full-time studies in a health or social services related field during the 2022-2023 academic year. Candidates must be able to offer services in both English and French, demonstrate that they like to get involved, and commit to working in the Lower Saint Lawrence for at least one year after their studies.
Two (2) categories of scholarships are currently offered. A third category, exclusively dedicated to students in programs leading to a Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS), will be launched in the fall of 2022.
