Applications are now ongoing for the Donald A. Wehrung International Student Award.
This award is a need and merit-based scholarship, that is awarded to international undergraduate students who despite being from impoverished and war-torn areas, managed to achieve academic excellence and are now in need of financial assistance to complete university education.
Students who are eventually selected will have their tuition fees for their degree study covered as well as living expenses. And the award may be renewed for another three years of undergraduate study or to degree completion – whichever comes first – provided that the student achieves satisfactory academic standing in their faculty, continue to demonstrate that they have financial need, and maintain their Canadian study permit (student visa).Table of Content
