Interprovincial Student Mobility (ACUFC)
ACUFC: the strong and collective voice for francophone community colleges and universities in Canada!
The Association des collèges et universités de la francophonie canadienne (ACUFC) facilitates student exchanges between its member institutions and universities in Quebec under the Quebec Action Plan on the Canadian Francophonie and with the financial support of Canadian Heritage and Quebec’s Secretariat on Canadian Intergovernmental Affairs.
The ACUFC encourages academic mobility in Canada by facilitating student exchanges between its member institutions and universities in Quebec.
Bursaries are offered to cover travel and living expenses, as well as a lump sum to purchase required books, supplies and materials. The ACUFC offers student exchange bursaries of $5,000 each. Students wishing to take part in the exchange program must first determine their eligibility.
The principal objectives of the ACUFC’s mobility program are:
- to strengthen ties between Canada’s Francophone minority communities and those in Quebec, thus increasing the sense of belonging to the Canadian Francophonie;
- to allow students to complete their university education and personal development in another Francophone cultural context.
