Scholarships in Canada

Scholarships in Canada: Canada is one of the leading study abroad destinations in the world. Canada attracts thousands and thousands of students every year as their study destination as Canada provides academic excellence, affordability, adventure, and high living standards.

 Canada is home to almost 500,000 international students and ranks as the 3rd most preferable study location. Canadian universities and colleges offer an extensive array of financial benefits to meritorious international students as an aid to support their studies. These financial benefits include many scholarships, grants, and bursaries which are funded by Educational Institutes, Government or Non-Government organizations. These financial benefits are mostly sanctioned to students with high academic performance, to students facing financial hurdles, or to students with great extra-curricular activities. In some cases, proficiency in English is also checked before granting and such benefits. Being selected for any benefit also depends on various other factors such as chosen university, subject, and level. Acquiring any such benefit is extremely challenging and competitive, so one needs to be very careful while choosing any university or scholarship and also be very careful while applying for scholarships in Canada.
