Waterloo International (WI) has allocated $20,000 to support co-op students. This is the result of a collaboration with Co-operative and Experiential Education (CEE), who identified a need to provide additional resources to international students.
“Traditionally, our international co-op students have a great track record of finding employment,” says Norah McRae, associate provost of CEE. “The pandemic has added challenges and barriers that we’re committed to helping them overcome.”
Every year, six exceptional co-op students, one from each faculty, are recognized by the University of Waterloo for their contribution to their employer, their community and the further development of experiential education.
It’s official: the new co-op fee amount of $734 for the 2020/21 fiscal year has been confirmed by UWaterloo’s Board of Governors.
The new $734 amount was first announced earlier this year as a result of our annual financial analysis and fee setting process, which recommended a 0.7% increase to the former $729 fee amount given our existing and forecasted budget.
