Important information for applicants:

  • For undergraduate applications for a research-based experience, a written institutional collaboration and student exchange agreement or memorandum of understanding between the Canadian institution and the candidate’s home institution are desirable but not mandatory. Instead of an agreement, you will be required to provide a Letter of Invitation from the University of Alberta professor who has agreed to supervise you.
  • For graduate applications, an inter-institutional agreement is desirable but not mandatory.
  • Student applicants must be enrolled full-time in their proposed degree program at the time of application. For example, if the application period falls during a gap between the student’s Master’s and Ph.D. enrollment, unfortunately, they will not be deemed eligible for the 2022-2023 scholarship year. If this situation applies to you, CBIE recommends applying next year.
  • Scholarships cannot be deferred and are not renewable.
  • Priority will be given to candidates who have not previously received a scholarship under any Global Affairs Canada scholarship program.
  • Scholarships are not taxable for either the Canadian institution or the scholarship recipient.
  • Must be proficient in the language of instruction at the Canadian institution (English or French) before they arrive in Canada, as the scholarship does not cover language training.

How to Apply

Interested applicants for the Government of Canada Scholarships 2023/24 at the University of Alberta are to ensure that they meet the eligibility criteria for the scholarship before they can proceed to find the host professor/supervisor.

Email professors you would potentially like to work with the following information:

  • your full name and contact information
  • your home University and home country
  • whether you are currently an undergraduate (bachelor) or graduate (master or doctoral) student
  • which year of your degree program you are in
  • the full name of the scholarship program you would be applying for
