Scholarships and awards
University scholarships for international students are available to new students based on criteria including academic success, community involvement, athletic excellence, references from instructors or employers or financial need.

The main types of university scholarships for international students in Canada include:
  • Undergraduate entrance (new student) scholarships

  • International entrance scholarships

  • International student athletic scholarships

  • Academic scholarships
Many universities in Canada administer scholarships just for incoming international students, and sometimes international students can apply for the same general entrance awards as local 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 you must apply by a specific deadline, or the award may only be open to students who have already received acceptance from the university. Eligibility and application requirements vary from one institution to another; therefore, it's important to consult the international student section and/ or the scholarship and financial assistance section of each university website. Some scholarships are available to international students entering a particular program of study, so check with the program department as well.

International entrance scholarships can be full-tuition or partial. Partial scholarships generally range from $2000 to $5000 Canadian dollars for study at any level and in any program. Be sure to check with the Ministry of Education (or similar agency) in your home country for international scholarship opportunities.

Scholarship and award programs for international students are also administered by the federal government, provincial governments and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Examples of some international student scholarships available at Canadian universities:

  • Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program is available to citizens of Commonwealth Countries for study and research in Canada.

  • International Student Humanitarian Award awarded to a student from impoverished or war-torn areas.

  • International Leader of Tomorrow Award

  • National Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada

  • Ambassadorial Scholarships are awarded through the Rotary Foundation

  • Financial assistance for international students
    Bursaries ranging from $500 to $1,000 are also sometimes available for undergraduate international students who demonstrate financial need and reasonable academic standing. Bursaries may be given out as emergency assistance for basic educational expenses if the student's original financial sources have fallen through.

    Visa students are not eligible for the Canadian Federal or Provincial student loan program but should look at what assistance may be offered through their own country. Loan assistance is also available through the International Education Finance Corporation (IEFC).
