"We’ve welcomed hundreds of international learners to NSCC through scholarship programs such as this over the years," says Ashley Pinsent-Tobin, Manager of International Learning (Incoming), NSCC International. "This is an exciting opportunity for the learners and also the College. In addition to pursuing studies at our campuses, we are strengthening relationships between NSCC and the partner institutions the learners have come from as well as creating real opportunities for relationship building."
Since 2010, NSCC has hosted hundreds of students through these programs. Several past recipients have returned to NSCC following their scholarship opportunity to pursue additional studies, while others have also chosen to immigrate to the province. Learn more:
