More support for African students
Canadian institutions like the University of Ottawa understands the struggles of an international student when it comes to studying abroad. Without the financial backing necessary, it is hard for students to concentrate on their education, and these specialised scholarships aim to assist and give students around the world the opportunity to study in Canada.
It is thanks to the strong academic relationship built between both countries and existing Canadian scholarships available for African students, which is one of the many reasons why they are able to move easily to study their preferred undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Great White North.
