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

Cégep de Matane will offer new scholarships to encourage students from the region, but also from abroad, to enroll in programs where there is a shortage of manpower.

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

The second scholarship program available from next school year is Perspectives Québec. It is an initiative of the Quebec government aimed at encouraging young people to enroll in a study program, which is a priority. It may be a priority because of its labor shortages as well as its future prospects. For Cégep de Matane, therefore, five programs appear on this list of approximately 30 training courses. It includes courses in nursing, computer science, multimedia, electrical engineering and 3D animation.

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