Apply for the Study in Canada Scholarships 2020. Following the launch of the new International Education Strategy, Global Affairs Canada is pleased to present the Study in Canada Scholarships program.

Funding for the Study in Canada Scholarships program is made available by Global Affairs Canada through its legal title: the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD). The Canadian post-secondary institution will receive funding from DFATD for all successful candidates in the form of a contribution agreement and will be responsible for disbursing the funds as scholarships to the recipients.

In addition to the funds allocated to the recipients by DFATD, the Canadian host institution may also claim a one-time fee of CAD 500 per scholarship recipient to assist with administrative costs once the scholarship recipient arrives in Canada.
