The number of scholarships for graduate studies offered to foreign students is very limited, because most of the Canadian and Québec organizations that grant scholarships impose the condition of Canadian citizenship or permanent residency status. However, below is a small list of financial aid programs specifically intended for foreign students. Upon your arrival, you may consult the directory of scholarships published annually by the Faculté des études supérieures et postdoctorales. There, you will find scholarships intended for foreign students, especially in the health field.
