Scholarships are an excellent way to fund your college studies if you are able to obtain one, as all your college fees are paid for and you do not owe the college anything.
Scholarships vary between institutions, so it’s recommended to check with the college or university you are most interested in to see what scholarships they have available.
Scholarships are usually given to the most academically gifted students who consistently achieve high results. When applying for a scholarship at the college or university of your choice, do your best to make a good impression and show the administrator why you are the best candidate for the scholarship. Highlight your previous exam results, achievements, extracurricular activities and any work or volunteer experience you may have.
Education in Canada, the Canadian government’s official education website, provides a useful guide to the scholarship opportunities available. The CEC Network website also has a comprehensive list of different scholarship options in Canada.
