Open to low-income students, Indigenous students and students with disability, the Global Skills Opportunity (GSO), the Government of Canada’s outbound mobility pilot program, aims to widen access to participation to study abroad programming.

Students on a study abroad trip

Funded by the GSO, Capilano University's two key Global Skills Opportunity initiatives, including field school and Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) programs, are opening new and innovative global opportunities for CapU students, faculty, and staff. 

Field Schools and GSO

A total of 22 CapU students, led by two CapU faculty, are currently participating in the Vietnam Field School (VFS) 2023. Nine of the 22 field school participants have received the GSO scholarship, which is covering the cost of their field school participation. 

Learn how you can become the next GSO scholarship recipient for upcoming field schools! 2024 Field Schools will be announced by mid-2023.
