A school board or government school may submit more than one project.
- There is no minimum or maximum number of students per project.
- The stay must be at least 10 days (number of days devoted to carrying out the project) and at most three months.
- The project must take place outside Quebec; Canadian provinces or territories are eligible on the same basis as international projects.
- Only students enrolled full-time in a program leading to a DVS or an AVS are eligible for a grant.
- At least half of the units of the course must first have been completed in Quebec.
- Training acquired outside Quebec must lead to obtaining a number of credits at the home institution, equivalent to full-time training; or for students alternating work and training, the mention on the report of a number of hours worked in a company.
- Activities completed outside Quebec will be accepted as equivalent for the completion of their diploma.
- The project budget must include a minimum contribution of 10% of the overall estimated cost that does not come from the grant. This contribution must be detailed in the project budget grid.
- The project must be safe. The safety aspects for projects in the health and construction sector are particularly important. The measures taken to ensure safety and safe practices in nursing care and construction must be specified by the vocational training center. Liability insurance should provide adequate coverage for this type of activity.

We invite you to submit your application before following deadlines: October 31 and February 15.
In relation to the COVID19 pandemic, no application will be processed by Éducation internationale as long as the level 3 travel advisory is still being issued by the Government of Canada
(avoid all non-essential travel) outside Canada. No funding will be possible in this context.
However, if the Government of Canada Level 3 Travel Advisory (Avoid non-essential travel) is lifted for your destination before February 15, 2021, Éducation internationale will process and assess your application and keep you informed. In the event that your application is selected and funded, the School Service Center and the vocational training center must not carry out the project abroad if a level 3 advisory warning is issued again for this destination before the start of the project. They will have to reimburse the amount of the grant if they wish to carry out the project despite this warning.
If you travel to another Canadian province, it is your responsibility to inform yourself about the travel restrictions put in place by the other province.
