List of Canadian Scholarships for International Students 2021

Canada is among countries that offer a high education system with affordable costs for students. Studying in Canada is generally less expensive than studying in the UK, USA, or Australia.

Canada welcomes 572,000 international students each year, and this explains its good reputation all over the world. 32 of the world’s top 1,000 universities and 21 in the top 500 are located in Canada. And each university is known for its unique and outstanding study programs. If studying abroad is on your mind, Canada should definitely be on your list.

However, tuition fees and living costs in foreign countries are usually high, thankfully, the government of Canada and some universities offer scholarships every year for international students to cover their expenses.

If you’re planning to study in Canada or any other foreign country, it is highly recommended to start the process a year in advance, as the procedure takes time to apply to universities and assemble all the required documents and information.
