Brock University has announced that it will increase financial support for international students who are pursuing a doctoral degree, writes Simona Chiose noting that the move is “part of what is likely to be a wave of such announcements as Ontario universities benefit from increased provincial funding to help recruit and support the world’s most talented students.” Chiose reports that Brock already provides fellowships to cover all but $3.5K of the tuition fees international students must pay, and that it will raise the offered support to cover the remainder. “We have a social obligation to disseminate knowledge worldwide and education can be that catalyst of revitalization in all parts of the world,” said Brock vice-provost for enrolment management and international, Jamie Mandigo.
