Algoma U launches scholarship program for top international BA students

October 15, 2012

Algoma University has developed a scholarship program to attract the best and brightest students worldwide to its BA program. The scholarships are valued at $5,000 and are renewable for up to 4 years, subject to good academic performance. In recent years, Algoma U has recruited large numbers of foreign students, but most of them are clustered in programs such as business, computer science, and math. The scholarship aims to attract students to liberal arts subjects such as fine arts, literature, history, and political science. Algoma U will make up to 5 scholarships available in each of its 15 liberal arts programs. Once fully subscribed, the scholarship program will fund up to 300 international students -- a considerable number for an institution whose enrolment totals 1,400. Algoma U president Richard Myers says the program "will help the University advance towards its goal of becoming one of the most diverse learning communities in the country." Algoma U News Release
