The VSP is a 4-week academic program where students will be studying 2 academic courses taught by members of the UBC faculty. They will have the opportunity to participate in guided laboratory exercises, socio-cultural activities on campus, and explore the city of Vancouver. In 2018, we had over 2500 students attend the VSP. Since it launched, we have continuously received excellent feedback from students and universities.

The AC21 Special Project Fund (SPF) was created in order to promote the development of research and educational exchange between AC21 members by providing “seed funding” for a variety of collaborative research projects and activities. Although research collaboration between AC21 members is important, this fund is not intended to support particular or individual research projects. It is awarded to projects that include as many participants as possible. For example, a symposium jointly held by three or more institutions, featuring speakers from these institutions, and open to all AC21 members, as well as to the general public, will serve our goal of internationalization and cooperation between members more effectively compared to simple research projects conducted by one or two individuals per institution.
