Graduate scholarship?

I am from Cambodia. Can I apply for a Master’s or doctoral scholarship to study in Canada?

The short answer is yes.

Every year thousands of international students from around the world come to study in Canada. Some pay for their programs out of pocket. But many obtain a scholarship, fellowship, and grants. For those of you who consider applying for scholarships to fund your studies, there are two channels you can do so.

The first channel is applying directly to universities across Canada. You review the admission requirements, contact potential supervisors, and prepare the application while in Cambodia. Once you finalise everything you then submit your application to your chosen university online through their website.

The other way is you apply for funding from the Canadian government, agencies, foundations, and other non-academic institutions through Canadian university you are currently attending. That means you first apply to study in Canada by paying on your own. Then while you’re a student in Canada, you can apply for funding through your university.

To apply directly to the university, check out Canada’s top 15 schools below (based on Times Higher Education’s World University Rankings data 2018). Please remember though that Canada has many higher education institutions that are also world-class, but which I haven’t included in this post.

  1. University of Toronto
  2. University of British Columbia
  3. McGill University
  4. McMaster University
  5. University of Montreal
  6. The University of Alberta
  7. University of Calgary
  8. University of Ottawa
  9. University of Waterloo
  10. Western University
  11. Dalhousie University
  12. Laval University
  13. Queen’s University
  14. Simon Fraser University
  15. University of Victoria

For funding programs offered by the Canadian government and other institutions outside academia, you can go here and here

So there you have it. Those are some places to look at if you want to seek fundings for your graduate studies.

I wish you all the best of luck in your endeavours to get funding to come to study in Canada! If you have questions, please leave your comments below.
