Scholarships for international students studying English as a Second Language (ESL) in Canada can be somewhat limited, particularly scholarships to come to Canada specifically to study ESL. However, there may be something available from the school you plan to attend. For instance, at some universities and colleges, all new students are eligible and automatically considered for entrance scholarships regardless of what they plan to study. Be sure to ask. At some schools, scholarships are only available to ESL students after a year of study if they have demonstrated academic excellence and/or community involvement. Others may be awarded for excellence in an ESL program with the intention that the recipient will use the scholarship to attend a Canadian college or university. You should check with any school you choose to attend to see if they have any scholarships or know of any that you might apply for.
