Study in Canada Scholarships

Dec 17, 2020    Source: BCCIE


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 piloted in 2020. At least 50 scholarships will be awarded in the next competition, with the number increasing each year.

The Scholarships are facilitated through institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between post-secondary institutions in Canada and in the following eligible countries/territories: Algeria, Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kenya, Libya, Morocco, Nepal, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, Uganda, and Ukraine.

These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutes and universities. Students, hereby referred to as “candidates”, must be registered full-time in their home institution at the time of application and during the entire duration of their study or research stay in Canada.

Roles and responsibilities

Canadian institutions are:

  • responsible for submitting applications on behalf of eligible candidates from institutions in the eligible countries/territories; and
  • encouraged to promote this scholarship opportunity to their faculty and staff members, as well as to partner institutions from the eligible countries/territories.

Canadian institutions with successful candidates:

  • should identify one staff member responsible for the administration of the program and another one with delegated signing authority; and
  • will receive contribution funding from Global Affairs Canada to disburse as scholarships to recipients.
