Perspective Québec Scholarship Program

A new incentive scholarship program will be available for Quebec students enrolled full-time in several programs of study at Quebec's CEGEPs, private colleges and universities, starting in the fall 2022 semester. It aims to increase the number of skilled people in government-prioritized occupations, labour shortages in essential public services as well as in strategic areas for the economy.

Quebec students enrolled full-time in targeted training programs leading to a diploma in priority areas will be eligible, whether they are at the beginning of their journey, in the middle or at the end.

These incentive grants are in addition to the current loans and bursaries program. Scholarships will be awarded to students after each successful full-time session - $1,500 for college per semester for a total of $9,000 for a three-year program. Bourses perspective Québec (

Government Student Loans and Bursaries Program

You may apply to the Québec loans and bursary program for assistance during your full-time studies.

ARC Student Prizes 2021-2022



Montreal, March 17, 2022. ─The Association pour la recherche au collégial (ARC) is inviting students from the Québec college and Canadian French-language school networks to submit their applications for this year’s edition of the Student Prizes by April 8, 2022. The first prize is a $1,500 scholarship, the second a $1,250 scholarship, and the third a $1,000 scholarship. Once again this year, ARC is offering every student who is recognized as a Québec resident and has entered the ARC Student Prizes competition the opportunity to also receive a Relève étoile designation, which is accompanied by a $1,000 prize.

The ARC Student Prizes aim to acknowledge student participation in research-learning activities across all programs and disciplines conducted in Québec’s public and private colleges. Thanks to a grant received from the Secrétariat du Québec aux relations canadiennes, ARC will be able to support the participation of Francophone students from outside Québec who wish to submit an application. Eligible research is any research conducted within such an institution by a candidate enrolled in a program of college studies, in one of the three research sectors: Society and culture, Health, or Nature and technologies. With respect to the Relève étoile designations, a Québec student enrolled in an institution outside Québec is also eligible to be a candidate, if that person provides evidence of residence in Québec. Research may have been conducted by an individual or a team as part of a program of college studies (course, internship), an extracurricular activity, or employment as a research assistant, during the academic year 2019-2020, 2020-2021, or 2021-2022. Research projects that did not receive one of the three ARC Student Prizes may be submitted a second time.

There are two stages in the competition: the first is an evaluation of the written portfolios; the second is an evaluation of the oral presentations by the students whose portfolios were selected as the three finalists. These presentations will take place on May 9, 2022, at the ARC colloquium (Nouveaux enjeux pour larecherche collégiale) to be held during the 89th Acfas conference, online. ARC agrees to produce a scientific poster in French for each of the three winning entries, prepared in consultation with the finalists. Acfas will cover the conference registration fees for the finalists, and COOPSCO will give them gift certificates. The ARC Student Prizes are also supported by the Fonds de recherche du Québec, the Secrétariat du Québec aux relations canadiennes, Acfas, and COOPSCO.

Students who wish to enter the competition can find more information on the ARC website pages about the Student Prizes at:
