CANADA Scholarships

Scholarships, grants, and bursaries are available to both international students and Canadian students, often at the postgraduate level. They provide funds to students that do not need to be paid back. Scholarship funding in Canada is limited and highly competitive.

Many Canadian universities and a few colleges have a limited number of scholarships or other forms of financial assistance for international students. These vary from institution to institution and many of these are administered only to incoming international students.

In some cases, international students are automatically considered for these entrance scholarships and awards when they apply to the university. In other cases, scholarships are competitive and students must apply by a specific deadline, or the award may only be open to students who have already received acceptance from the university.
