HOW TO SUBMIT AN APPLICATION

Interested students must submit an application directly to the colleges, universities and university faculties participating in the FSL Bursary Program.

These institutions will be in charge of assessing student applications and awarding bursaries.

The ACUFC will not be accepting submissions directly from students.

CALL FOR VIGILANCE:

The Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC) has noticed an increase in fraudulent communications and social media channels. Please note that the Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne or postsecondary educational institutions will never ask you for funds to obtain access to the Bursaries for Postsecondary Studies in French as a Second Language Program. When in doubt, please contact us at boursesfls@acufc.ca.

The Bursaries for Postsecondary Studies in French as a Second Language Program exists thanks to the Action Plan for Official Languages 2018-2023 (APOL) – Investing in Our Future. The federal government made a commitment to promoting a bilingual Canada, in particular by supporting English-speaking Canadians in learning French.

The ACUFC was assigned the responsibility for implementing this program by the Department of Canadian Heritage (PCH).
