BCom student headed to South Korea as McCall MacBain International Fellow

Published: 16 June 2023

As part of the fourth cohort of McCall MacBain International Fellows, eight McGill students have been selected to spend a fully funded year abroad to study, live and work in a new country, including BCom student Jennifer Shi. Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, Shi, who serves as Co-President of the Junior Hong Kong-Canada Business Association, a Junior Team Canada Ambassador at Global Vision, and a member of the Canada China Forum, will be spending a year learning Korean in South Korea. She also volunteers as an Ambassador for the Desautels Exchange Network (DEN), a student resource for incoming and outgoing management students at McGill University, and is the recipient of the Commerce 1955 Scholarship and a Gerald Schwartz & Heather Reisman Foundation Alumna.

Valued at up to $30,000, the Fellowship is designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn a language, participate actively and respectfully in a new community, build lasting international ties, and deepen their ability to work in a different cultural context. Fellows will depart this summer, and during their year abroad will spend one term learning a new language, one term completing academic studies, and one term at a work or internship experience.

Applications for the next cohort will open in October 2023 for departure in 2024.
