International Certificate

International Certificate

The OCDSB’s International Certificate Program (ICP) is designed to recognize and honour students in grade 9–12 who demonstrate a commitment to being motivated, engaged and active global citizens. Students may join in any grade.

The OCDSB introduced International Certificate Program in 2013 and have expanded it to all of its high schools in Ottawa. With over 450 students currently enrolled, and an annual graduating cohort of nearly 100, this program has truly taken off and has been the inspiration for other school boards across the province to start their own International Certificate Programs

Carleton University offers 10 annual scholarships up to $1000 if you are an ICP graduate and are enrolling in their Bachelor of Global and International Studies program.
The scholarship application is here if you are interested.

ICP graduates are eligible to apply for $1000 scholarships to study at Huron at Western University. More details are here.
