part of $5.8M "to cultivate the next generation of global leadership" among young Canadians

CAPI is pleased to announce that, in parternship with UVic's Co-operative Education and Career Services, we have secured phase III funding from the Queen Elizabeth Scholars (QES) program. Our successful project, titled "ASEAN Internship: Experience, Networking and Community (ENC) Program" will allow us to send 38 UVic students on life-changing internships in Southeast Asia over the next four years.

About the QES program

Now in its fourth year, the QES program is a collaborative initiative led by the Rideau Hall Foundation, Universities Canada and the Community Foundations of Canada, made possible thanks to contributions from the Government of Canada, provincial governments, the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), universities, and a wide range of private sector donors.

About CAPI's internship program

Since 2003, CAPI's Internship Program has funded more than 150 Canadian students and graduates to complete international internship placements with partners across the Asia-Pacific region.
