Global Affairs Scholarships

Global Affairs Canada Scholarships

The Global Affairs Canada Scholarship program consists of scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students and university staff and faculty, who are coming to study or do research, at York University, from specific countries. There is also a new Faculty Mobility Program for Canadian faculty to teach or research abroad.

Interested parties must first submit their application, complete with all supporting documentation to York International, who then nominates eligible applicants to Global Affairs Canada.

Review the GAC Scholarship Guide for Students for directions and links to the York International Global Affairs Canada Scholarship application form.

Applicants are encouraged to consider applying for the winter term (January 2022 start) given uncertainty about method of course delivery in September and when the current travel ban will end.
