QC gives $1.5M for struggling CEGEPS to attract students

August 23, 2016

Quebec has announced that it will invest $1.5M to help recruit students from Quebec and Montreal to the region's CEGEPs. La Presse reports that the 19 CEGEPs that stand to benefit from the funds are facing current and projected declines in student enrolment. The announced funding will reportedly be used to facilitate enrolment in CEGEPs by paying for student lodging or transportation. The program was reportedly first conceived by the Fédération étudiante collégiale du Québec, whose Chair Rose Crevier-Dagenais says that roughly 200 urban students could benefit from this measure in the 2017 school year.
