Scholarships to study in Canada

Canadian universities and colleges provide a wide range of scholarships for international students to help them fund their studies. Apart from this, many scholarships, grants and bursaries are also offered by the Canadian government, public and private establishments. Before you apply to any of these scholarships, do check the eligibility and criteria, along with the closing date.

The primary criterion for most scholarships is a good academic score, however, it also depends on factors such as your chosen institution, subject and level. In some scholarships, factors like extracurricular activities, and volunteering can also be used to advantage.

However, do note that the amount of money available and the type of award varies between the various institutions. Getting a scholarship is competitive and so, you must apply well in time. We recommend you to start with the procedure about 8-12 months before the intake begins. If you get stuck anywhere, IDP counsellors will be more than happy to guide you through.
