Applying for a Canadian scholarship as an international student.


The process of applying for studies abroad can be very overwhelming—and expensive!
To help you we put together the following list of Canadian scholarships available to international students interested in studying in Canada.
The Canadian government and many post-secondary institutions offer international students possibilities for obtaining scholarship awards, grants, or bursaries to finance their education.
Unlike a loan, money received from a scholarship program does not need to be repaid.
If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, it is important to understand the application process and abide by the deadline specified by the granting institution or organization.
The eligibility requirements and application package often differs from one scholarship to the next. For example, some scholarships may require a personal essay and/or request references from past teachers or employers. Other scholarships may be primarily offered based on academic performance, extracurricular achievements, or other creative skills.
It is important to note that the deadlines and eligibility requirements listed here are subject to change and it is recommended that you contact the organization and institution for updated information and deadlines.
