Study and Stay™ – Capstone Program 

The Study and Stay™ – Nova Scotia Capstone Program provides participants with enhanced one-on-one and group support through international students throughout their final year of study at a post-secondary institution in Nova Scotia. The program includes managed mentorship by industry professionals within the participants’ field, providing opportunities for students to apply their knowledge, build connections, and gain a deeper understanding of the Nova Scotian job market. 

Program Eligibility 

Applicants must be international students entering their final year of study at a Nova Scotian post-secondary institution. Applicants should be committed to living and working in the province of Nova Scotia post-graduation and demonstrate outstanding leadership and initiative on and off campus.  

While there is no set GPA requirement, students are expected to be in good academic standing, contribute to their academic and social communities, andf be eligible for graduation within the year of completing the program. Applicants must have a valid study permit (Canadian citizens and permanent residents do not currently qualify for the program). Upon time of graduation, applicants must be eligible to apply for a post-graduation work permit. 

We ask all applicants to have an active LinkedIn profile and be available for a mandatory program retreat. 

Applicants will be contacted by email regarding their application status by the date set each year by the Program Coordinator. Applications received after the deadline will be put on a waiting list.
