Canada is an attractive study-abroad destination, drawing international students with its vibrant cities and breathtaking natural beauty. To assist with funding their studies here, countless scholarships for students are offered by governments, universities and private organizations – non-repayable financial awards that take into account academic records, community service activities and extra-curricular pursuits as well as an applicant’s financial situation when awarding awards.
American students looking to study in Canada can find many fellowship and scholarship opportunities; however, many are limited and highly competitive. Furthermore, such scholarships tend to go only to those with exceptional academic histories in specific fields of study.
