UPDATES AT EDUNOVA – July 28, 2023

Study and Stay™ Foundations Program Internship Awards

EduNova hosted a virtual graduation ceremony for the recipients of the Nova Scotia International Student Program (NSISP) International Ambassador Awards on July 5. NSISP International Ambassadors are an outstanding group of Nova Scotian students who volunteer in their junior and senior years of high school to welcome more than 1,500 international students participating in the NSISP program. In recognition of their contributions NSISP International Ambassadors are eligible to receive a $2,000 tuition award to attend one of Nova Scotia’s ten universities or the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC). In Fall 2023, these students will serve as peer mentors in the Study and Stay™  – Nova Scotia Foundations Internship Program.

Study and Stay™ Foundations Program Summer Activities

The Study and Stay™ Foundations Program organized their first hike at the Shaw Wilderness Park on Saturday, July 15, and it was a great success! Current Study and Stay students and recent grads joined forces for an unforgettable adventure where new friendships bloomed, new connections were forged, and the beauty of Nova Scotia’s outdoors amazed the entire group. The next event will be held leaving from Point Pleasant Park in Halifax on Saturday, August 5th. Registration is open now!
