Studying in Canada is a popular option for many students at EAB. While the cost of a Canadian university education is generally less expensive than in the United States, it can still be quite costly, especially when living expenses and exchange rates are taken into account.
Most financial aid in Canada is intended for Canadian students, while international students will be expected by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) to finance their studies in Canada on their own. Planning ahead and getting a clear idea of the costs involved will help you make good decisions. World Education Services (WES) has a helpful website with information on financial aid in Canada.
Many universities offer entrance scholarships for academically strong students. These scholarships are often automatic, based on the eligibility criteria, which is usually a minimum GPA requirement, and require students be registered full-time. The University of Toronto (U of T) and the University of British Columbia (UBC) both offer entrance scholarships to academically strong students.
There are also merit based scholarships at both UBC and U of T, along with other universities in Canada. UBC offers the International Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship, while U of T offers the Lester B. Pearson Scholarship. EAB may nominate a limited number of students for these awards, therefore interested candidates who meet the scholarship requirements must turn their completed applications into the College Counseling Office by November 1.
