Do you want to earn a doctorate or you want to learn about how to coach youth basketball, there are all sorts of programs and financial aids that are available for International students in Canada. They can work their way through post-secondary education without having to pay the full price. In fact, most international students will qualify for federal loans. Some will be able to qualify for bursaries as well. If you are eligible, you will have the option of getting your tuition and other costs paid for by the government. This is great for you and your family.
Although it’s not known yet what impact President Obama’s new scholarships and loan programs will have on International students in Canada, it is good to know that the scholarships and loans should make life easier for them in the long run. Students will still be required to continue working, but many of the loans that they received will cover their tuition. It may even cover some of their living expenses for as long as they live in Canada. It’s all going to depend on the student, but most programs will allow students to continue paying the fees while they’re in Canada.
Not all International students qualify for this type of financial aid, but if you do then it makes it that much easier for you. And if you already came to Canada and want to continue studying there, this is a great time to apply for this type of scholarship. You can get one for your undergraduate degree as well as your graduate program if you have been accepted to that university. You should apply for more than one program because there is no limit on the number of scholarships you can apply for.
