Experiential Learning Program at Bishop’s University
Experiential Learning Program
The purpose of experiential learning projects is to foster student innovation, initiative, and self-reliance by providing internships in practical research and, most particularly, job-related experiences in the community, charities, and non-profit organizations. In turn, these experiential learning projects offer small companies, community organizations or educational institutions an opportunity to explore the dynamism and creativity of our young students and their will to learn and work right here in our Townships.
Should you be interested in offering an ELP project to a Bishop's University student, please don’t hesitate to contact ETRC’s Executive Director, Fabian Will.
Experiential learning projects can be submitted for financial support from the Experiential Learning Internships Grant Fund (ELIGF), an endowment provided by the Bishop’s University Foundation, which provides grants of up to $2000. The experiential learning projects provide credits. Although the funds cannot be used as wages or tuition fees, they can include the cost of equipment, in which case the equipment will remain the property of Bishop's University after the completion of the course. ELIGF competition is held every year in November.
