The GASP (Canadian Francophonie Scholarship Program) is a scholarship programme designed to build organisational capacity by training staff from La Francophonie’s poorest countries. The programme is fully funded by the Canadian government, which has handed its programme to the Canadian Bureau for International Education / World University Service of Canada collaboration from January 1, 2015.
The long-term objective of the program is to encourage the growth of recipient nations by providing priority to:
- Improving the skills of college and university personnel in the field of education and research.
- Training of trainers, particularly in the field of technical and vocational education.
- Increasing and strengthening the skills of specialists and managers in the public and private sectors.
Since July 1, 2006, the AUCC has been the executing organisation for the Canadian Francophonie Scholarship Program (CFSP). The CFSP programme is entirely funded by the Canadian government. The CFSP is a scholarship programme that trains nationals from 37 poor nations in La Francophonie to enhance institutional capacity. The Canadian Partnership Branch of the Canadian International Development Agency manages the initiative (CIDA).
Through collaboration among its member institutions, the Association of Colleges and Universities of the Canadian Francophonie promotes community college and university education in Canada’s minority francophone populations. Each member institution plays a critical role in the cultural, social, and economic development of the community it serves. The Association represents its member institutions to the Government of Canada, as well as national and international organisations, on issues of mutual interest. When it did not include community college members, the organisation was known as the Association of Universities of the Canadian Francophonie, or in French, Association des universités de la francophonie canadienne (AUFC).
