Cégep de Matane is enriching its scholarship program to attract more students to programs where labor needs are high.

Cégep de Matane will offer new scholarships to encourage students from the region, as well as from abroad, to enroll in programs where there is a labor shortage.

The first scholarship of up to $6,000 for the duration of the three-year program is intended for students from the RCMs of La Matanie, La Mitis, La Matapédia and Haute-Gaspésie, as well as international students who will be registered in the field of tourism or urban planning. We therefore hope that students who will follow their training at Cégep de Matane will be tempted to pursue a career in their field of study here in the region.

Another scholarship program available starting next school year is Perspectives Québec. This is an initiative of the Government of Quebec that aims to encourage young people to enroll in a priority study program. It can be a priority as much because of labor shortages as it is about future prospects. Thus, for the Cégep de Matane, there are five programs in this list of about thirty courses. It includes courses in nursing, informatics, multimedia, electrical engineering and 3D animation.

These new scholarships are in addition to the existing ones, either scholarships for interregional mobility or those from the Cégep de Matane Foundation, which are available according to the nature of the students’ needs.
