Québec 2024 Merit Scholarship for Foreign Students (PBEEE)
We are currently seeking applications from qualified and exceptional individuals for the Québec Government Merit Scholarship for Foreign Students. This scholarship aims to facilitate the global expansion of research endeavors within Québec’s higher education institutions.
The Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) is tasked with overseeing the program. This responsibility has been delegated to them by the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur du Québec (MEES), which is the entity responsible for funding the program.
The Québec Government, based in the Canadian province of Québec, is responsible for governing and administering various aspects of the province’s affairs. It operates within the framework of Canada’s federal system, maintaining its own distinct legal and cultural identity. The Québec Government plays a crucial role in areas such as education, healthcare, transportation, and cultural promotion, and it actively supports initiatives that contribute to the enrichment and development of Québec’s society and economy. With a unique blend of French and North American influences, the Québec Government reflects the province’s rich heritage and commitment to preserving its linguistic and cultural heritage.
