Saint Lucian Awarded Canadian Francophonie Scholarship

Press Release:- Emmanuella Louis is a diligent educator from St Lucia, who is committed to serving her country and educating her students.

 It is this commitment that motivated her to apply for the Canadian Francophonie Scholarship Program, where she emerged as the awardee.

The Government of Canada-funded scholarship programme is offered to nationals of developing Francophonie member countries and is aimed at building stronger institutions through increasing the knowledge and skills of their employees.

The scholarship will allow her to pursue a two year Masters program in Educational Technology at the Laval University in Quebec, Canada.  

She currently works as an Educator at the Bocage Secondary School, specializing in teaching French and Spanish. Her dream has always been to make a significant contribution to her country, and this goal will be realised as she uses this training to fuse her love for technology with her current field of work. 

Although the importance of ICT in the classroom has been recognized, she believes that many educators do not use it due to lack of training.    This was one of the driving forces behind her application for the scholarship. On completion, she aspires to return to St Lucia armed with knowledge and training to help reshape the educational sector, and advance student knowledge utilising technology.  

A resident of the community of Gros-Islet, St Lucia, Emmanuella Louis has a Bachelor’s degree in French and Spanish from the University of West Indies Cave Hill Campus and a Post Graduate Diploma in Education and a Diploma in Advanced French (DALF C1) from the International Centre of Pedagogical Studies.  

The applications for the 2019 award were evaluated by a local advisory committee comprising of representatives of various ministries in their country with the accredited Canadian Diplomatic Mission acting as observer to ensure transparency of the selection process.


  1. You go girl …God bless you and keep you as you move forward in this educational endeavor. You are truly an example to your fellow citizens.

    Everyone may not possess the same skill sets …however everyone has something positive to contribute to society if they desire to do so. Peace and blessings
