This scholarship program recognizes outstanding undergraduate international students from Africa and poor areas affected by war, who may have achieved notable academic excellence in unfavorable circumstances and cannot further their education without the Scholarship. The value of the Award is equal to their state of financial want and sufficiency to fund living expenses and tuition fees for their degree of study.
The Award is renewable for a few more years of undergraduate study or to degree completion – whichever comes 1st – provided you attain satisfactory academic and moral standing in your school. Also, as long as you continue to demonstrate a lack of money and maintain your Canadian study permit card (student visa).
