Canada is the host of many Caribbean international students and I am excited to share this scholarship opportunity that is available for both American (U.S. residents are considered International Students for Canadian universities) and Caribbean International Students.
The $235,000 in awards is made up of three scholarship awards to attend York University:
- The International Circle of Scholars Scholarship ($15,000).
- Global Leader of Tomorrow Award ($20,000 x 4 year = $80,000); and
- International Entrance Scholarship($35,000 x 4 year = $140,000).
