Call for applications for Ashton College Bursaries for New Immigrants

Interested in going back to school? Does Ashton College have a program that interests you at its Vancouver or online campus? And are you a new immigrant who arrived in Canada for the first time in the last five years?

If so, you may be eligible for one of their Ashton College Bursaries for New Immigrants. Applications for 2018 are now being accepted! You can easily apply online here.

Since 2005, Canadian Immigrant has co-sponsored the bursaries (formerly known as Lilian To Bursaries for Immigrants), to help newcomers add a Canadian educational credential to their resumé.

The bursaries cover full-time tuition (valued up to $8,000) for a range of Ashton College programs, which include everything from diplomas in immigration consultancy to human resources to sales and marketing, and more.

“We’ve been offering these newcomer bursaries for so many years because we understand that getting Canadian credentials can be an important stepping stone in re-establishing your career and getting licensed, too,” says Colin Fortes, president of Ashton College.

In fact, immigrants looking to gain Canadian credentials make up a big portion of the student population at the college, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Ashton College’s programs are all accredited by, or offered in partnership with, professional associations and national licensing bodies.

Deadline for submissions this year is on Tuesday, July 31, 2018.
