research in Canada The goal of scholarships is to expand the options for Canadian post-secondary institutions to accept short-term exchanges of international students from a variety of nations and territories for study or research.
In keeping with the goals of Canada’s International Education Strategy, successful Canadian post-secondary institutions will have the chance to strengthen and diversify their international connections as well as to advertise their academic and research excellence in the new markets.
The program’s new links will expand and enhance Canada’s educational engagement with a wide range of partners, boost bilateral ties, and support the Canadian government’s larger aim to diversify its international trade.

Benefits of a scholarship
Finance for Canadian Studies Global Affairs Canada, often known as the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade, and Development, offers scholarships (DFATD).
Scholarship amount and time frame
All successful applicants will receive financing from DFATD in the form of a contribution agreement from the Canadian institution, which will then be in charge of giving the money to scholarship beneficiaries.
The value of a scholarship varies according to the length and degree of study:
- CAD 10,200 for college, undergraduate or graduate students (Master’s and PhD) for a minimum of four months or one academic term of study or research; or
- CAD 12,700 for graduate students (Master’s and PhD) for a period of five to six months of study or research.
The Canadian host institutions will receive CAD 500 per scholarship recipient to help with administrative expenditures after the scholarship recipient arrives in Canada, in addition to the cash granted to the grantees by DFATD.
The additional employer compliance fees that Canadian institutions have paid to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada may be refunded in some circumstances.
Scholarship funds should be used towards:
- visa or study/work permit fees;
- airfare for the scholarship recipient only via the most direct and economical route;
- health insurance;
- living expenses, such as accommodation, utilities and food;
- ground transportation, including a public transportation pass; and
- books and supplies required for the recipient’s study or research, excluding computers and other equipment.
According to its internal procedures, the Canadian institution will provide monies to scholarship recipients after receiving funding from DFATD in the form of a contribution agreement.
Canadian institutions are required to refund all money, including the administrative fee, to DFATD in the event that a recipient declines the scholarship.
