The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco

DDQIC is pleased to announce the sponsorship of two undergraduate student spots to participate in this year’s Cansbridge Fellowship Conference (May 3-5. 2019). The annual conference organized by The Cansbridge Fellowship brings Fellows (including Queen's commerce and DDQIC alumni Chris Labelle, board member of the Cansbridge Fellowship and COO/Cp-Founder of Mosaic Manufacturing) and guests from around the world together for:

  • Immersive workshops with industry professionals and entrepreneurs
  • Unparalleled access to Bay area companies through office tours and networking events
  • A world of connections and possibilities only accessible in Silicon Valley.

What is the Cansbridge Fellowship?

Cansbridge is the launchpad for tomorrow’s global leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs. In order to create impact on a global scale, Cansbridge believes you first need to develop the right skills and an open, global mindset. The best way to do this is to get comfortable with discomfort - by exposing yourself to new ideas, beliefs and methods in international settings.

Each May, The Cansbridge Fellowship reconnects at The Cansbridge Fellowship Conference (CFC) during a weekend in San Francisco. This year, two Queen's University students will be selected and sponsored (flights and accommodations included) to join the Fellowship for CFC. Students in their first and second year of their undergraduate studies are eligible to apply.


Please submit an application using the form available here.

Applications close Wednesday, March 27th, 2019.

All applicants will be notified of selection decision by Thursday, April 4th, 2019.
