Canadian universities and colleges offer a wide range of scholarships to international students. In addition, there are also grants, and bursaries offered by the government and private establishments.
To avail a scholarship, most institutions consider a good academic score. However, this can vary depending on your choice of destination and subject. Extracurricular activities and volunteer work is also considered in some cases.
Since the application process is highly competitive, it is recommended to apply 8-12 months in advance to beat the rush.
