About the Study & Stay PEI Program

The Study & Stay PEI Program (previously the Atlantic Canada Study and Stay™ – Prince Edward Island program) is funded by the province of Prince Edward Island and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency.

The goal of Study & Stay PEI is to support a group of select international students to live, work, and stay in Prince Edward Island post-graduation. The program provides student participants with the essential skills, resources, and support needed as they transition from ‘student’ to ‘professional’ in their final year of study. The Study & Stay PEI program will run from October, 2021, to August, 2022.
