As the Government of Canada works to fast-track Ukrainian refugees coming to Canada, the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts (VanArts) recognizes that education can make a positive difference in their lives. The highly ranked school is offering 25 full tuition scholarships for Canada-bound Ukrainian refugees of the Russian invasion, which began on February 24.
All five of VanArts’ one-year diploma programs offered for the March intake will be eligible for these scholarships: 2D Character Animation, 3D Character Animation, Game Art & Design, Professional Photography and Visual Effects for Film & TV. Programs start March 14, 2022, but late admission is permitted until April 4. Students can begin their studies online until they are able to travel to Canada.
“VanArts offers intensive one-year programs designed to make students job ready,” said VanArts President Alan Phillips. “Our school has an excellent reputation among local and international studios for the quality of our grads. It’s our desire to give this opportunity to Ukrainian refugees, and to provide training that will help them launch a creative and rewarding career in Canada.”
Prospective students are advised to contact VanArts’ admissions team who will guide them through the application process. Admissions advisors are available Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. PST by calling 1-604-682-2787 or emailing email@example.com.
