Canada: Applications For Scholarship Programs Now Open For International Students

The Canadian government is awarding scholarships to International Students from 2022 to 2023.

Scholarships are intended to improve access for Canadian post-secondary institutions to host overseas students from various nations and territories on relatively brief exchanges for study or research.

This student exchange program offers prospective students a full-degree-based study in the Canada Scholarships program, which will be created in 2020. The next competition will give approximately 50 scholarships, with the number increasing each year.

Candidates interested in this scholarship program must have definite attributes, qualifications, and responsibilities, such as making their interest known to their home institution, being aware of existing institutional collaboration or exchange agreements between their home institution and a Canadian institution, and having the necessary documents about the application process and selection criteria specific to the Canadian partner institution.

DFATD (Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development) will provide funding to the Canadian institution in the form of a contribution agreement for all successful candidates. Award values range from CAD 10,200 for college, undergraduate, or graduate students (Master’s and PhD) for a minimum of four months or one academic term of study or research to CAD 12,700 for graduate students (Master’s and PhD) for a period of five to six months of study or research.

Roles and responsibilities for the scholarship:

  • Make applications on behalf of qualified people;
  • Promote this scholarship opportunity to their professors and staff members, as well as to partner universities from qualifying countries or territories, and score submissions based on the institution’s strategic priorities
  • Designate a single person to be in charge of application submission, execute a Contribution Agreement with DFATD, and distribute scholarship cash to successful candidates; and
  • During the scholarship time, you must provide qualitative and quantitative reports.

Scholarships for Studying in Canada Scholarships are made available through Global Affairs Canada, which operates under the formal name of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development (DFATD).

Scholarships cannot be deferred or renewed; the scholarship administrator will not provide comments to rejected candidates. Scholarships are also subject to funding availability from the Government of Canada, and they are not taxable for either the Canadian university or the scholarship winner.

Scholarship recipients will need to agree to certain criteria:

  • Students will have to engage in full-time studies or research, as defined by the Canadian institution
  • Arrive in Canada by August 1, 2022, but no later than February 1, 2023, to claim their prize. Failure to appear during this time may result in the scholarship being cancelled
  • Avoid clinical training or clinically-oriented research that involves direct patient care
  • During their stay in Canada, they should concentrate on full-time studies or research
  • After the scholarship time, they will return to their home universities to finish their studies

Additional employer compliance fees paid to Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) may be refunded to Canadian institutions.

Scholarship funds should be used towards:

  • Fees for a visa, a study permit, or a work permit
  • Only the most direct and cost-effective route will be used for the scholarship recipient’s air travel.
  • Health-care coverage
  • Accommodation, utilities, and food are examples of living expenses.
  • Transportation on the ground, including a public transportation pass
  • Books and resources needed for the recipient’s study or research, excluding computers and other electronic equipment

The application deadline is March 22, 2022. Interested students can apply here.
