Global Affairs Canada offers Study in Canada scholarships for foreign students of certain Asian and African countries.
With this new program, international students will be able to study or conduct research in Canadian post-secondary institutions at a college, undergraduate, or graduate level, which will replace the full-degree-based Study in Canada Scholarships piloted in 2020.
This year, at least 50 scholarships will be awarded to eligible international students. There will be an increase in the number of foreign students admitted to Canada each year as the number of awards increases.
For Canadian post-secondary institutions, they must:
submit applications on behalf of eligible candidates
promote this scholarship opportunity to their faculty and staff members, as well as to partner institutions from the eligible countries/territories
rank applications based on the institution’s strategic priorities
identify a single person responsible for the submission of applications
sign a Contribution Agreement with DFATD and disburse scholarship funds to successful candidates and
submit qualitative and quantitative reports during the scholarship period
Also, candidates interested in the scholarship program should:
make their interest known to their home institution
find out if there is an existing institutional collaboration or exchange agreement between their home institution and a Canadian institution
request information from their home institution about the application process and selection criteria specific to the Canadian partner institution and
ensure they meet the eligibility requirements
