Canadian Scholarships

A scholarship is a predetermined amount of financial aid, awarded to students in high school, college, or university; to help students pay the costs of continuing their education. Scholarships often reflect the aims and intentions of a donor. Scholarship amounts vary, depending upon the benefactor, as well as, the nature and scope of the scholarship.

There are four main classes of scholarships:

1. Merit Based: based on a student's academic, athletic, artistic, extracurricular activities, or community service.

2. Need Based: based on the students and his or her family's financial position; as well as, their program of study.

3. Student Specific: applicants must qualify by gender, race, religion, family or medical history, or many other student-specific factors. Minority scholarships are the most common awards in this category.

4. Career Specific: awarded to students planning to pursue a specific field of study, and then work in that field.
