Canadian & Commonwealth Citizens

British Chevening Scholarships

The British Chevening Scholarships enable students of high intellectual promise to pursue studies in the United Kingdom. Chevening scholars must study in the UK for at least three months. Most scholars already have a first degree and the majority study for postgraduate degrees, particularly Master's courses.

You must apply to the British Embassy/High Commission or The British Council in the country of which you are a citizen.

Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan

The Commonwealth Scholarship and Fellowship Plan enables students of high intellectual promise to pursue studies in Commonwealth countries other than their own, so as to foster mutual understanding within the Commonwealth.

McCall MacBain Scholarships

Each year, the McCall MacBain Scholarship program offers up to 20 full scholarships for graduate/professional study at McGill University, along with up to 60 awards of $5000 or $10,000 CAD. Only Canadian citizens, permanent residents, or those with refugee status are eligible. Interested students must also apply concurrently to a graduate program at McGill. 

Rhodes Scholarships

Rhodes Scholarships are the oldest international fellowships, initiated after the death of Cecil Rhodes in 1902. They bring outstanding students from countries around the world to study at the University of Oxford. Awards are made for a two-year period but may be extended for a third year. An applicant must be unmarried, and remain unmarried during the first year of residence. The stipend covers tuition, travel, fees, and maintenance.
