Canadian Government Study in Canada Scholarships

The Government of Canada is pleased to announce the Study in Canada Scholarships for international students. The scholarship is open to all students of post-secondary education (undergraduate, master’s, and PhD).

Study in Canada Scholarships aim to increase opportunities for Canadian post-secondary institutions to welcome international students from a wide range of countries and territories on short-term exchanges for study or research. Applications are currently being received until the March deadline.

Scholarship Description

The Study in Canada Scholarships provide students from post-secondary institutions located in the new eligible countries/territories with short-term exchange opportunities for study or research in Canadian post-secondary institutions at the college, undergraduate, and graduate levels.

This student exchange program replaces the full-degree-based Study in Canada Scholarships program piloted in 2020. At least 50 scholarships will be awarded in the next competition, with the number increasing each year.
