The Summer French Immersion Program is considered an Enriched Educational Opportunity (EEO), a high-quality off-campus mobility or other experiential opportunity. EEOs foster self-development and help students transition successfully to the workplace. The University is striving to expand opportunities for undergraduates to participate in EEOs and to make them accessible to all undergraduates regardless of their financial capacity. As such, any student who wishes to participate in the French Explore Program but faces financial barriers may apply to the EEO Bursary Program to help defray additional costs. Visit the Scholarships and Student Aid website for more information about EEO Bursary Program details, how to apply, student eligibility, etc.
