For international students, the prospect of studying in Canada is a welcoming one – due to its great quality of life, top universities, diversity of cultures, and prevalence of English, the list is endless. However, one of the daunting aspects of studying in Canada, or studying abroad in general for that matter, is the mammoth financial burden of arranging for the tuition fees plus the cost of living.
If Canada is your ideal study-abroad destination, but you need financial support, then getting a scholarship becomes a critical step in fulfilling your goals. Be it the Government of Canada or the universities themselves, a range of scholarships exists for international students that might just ease your burden of overseas education.
Before we dive right in, here is the disclaimer that you ought to know. The scope of this article is far removed from the concept of free universities (yes, universities that do not charge tuition fees do exist, but you will have to bear other costs). You also have the choice of considering low-cost universities. However, by applying for scholarships and securing them, you are creating an opportunity for yourself to study abroad for free.
