New Summer Language and Culture program

Commencing in 2012 the Ontario-Jiangsu Student Exchange Program (OJS) will offer scholarships to Ontario graduate and undergraduate students to participate in a Summer Chinese Language and Culture Program.

The scholarships will provide students with the opportunity to study Chinese language and culture in selected Jiangsu universities for a period of 5-7 weeks. Using funds provided by Ontario’s Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities, the OJS will award each selected participant a scholarship of up to $1,000.

Participating students will be required to pay tuition, accommodation and any travel to sites included in the Summer Chinese Language and Training Program.

The program will be open to students of all Ontario universities participating in the OJS. The program will also be open to students participating in the regular OJS Student Exchange Program as an opportunity to strengthen Chinese language capability prior to their exchange.

Appropriate academic credit may be granted for this work at the discretion of the student’s home university.

Details of the program can be found here. Further details will be provided in the coming months.
