Bursaries For International Students
Some students will be unable to attend a university in the United States or Canada due to cost or distance. Bursaries are scholarships that provide funding for education outside of the United States and Canada. There are several types of bursaries, including merit-based, need-based, and institutional. Some bursaries are available only to international students. A merit-based bursary is aimed at students who would otherwise not be able to attend the university due to their financial circumstances.
The amount of a merit-based bursary will vary between institutions but can range from $3,000 to $10,000. A need-based bursary is intended to help meet the educational expenses of a student who cannot pay for their education from financial aid. Based on financial need, a need-based bursary ranges from 30% to 100% of the total cost of attendance at the university. An institutional bursary is reserved for universities with facilities and infrastructure to support international students.
It is usually based on the number of full-time international students at the university but can vary depending on the institution. Aperture Canada offers a variety of scholarships for international students, including the Toronto Gifted and Talented Scholarship, the Air Canada Gifted and Talented Scholarships, and the Adobe Canada Gifted and Talented Scholarships.
Manitoba Bursaries For International Students
The Exchange Visitor Program, also known as the Manitoba Bursary, covers most of the University of Manitoba's tuition and fees. The bursary is available to undergraduate students who are pursuing an international degree or who is a full-time equivalent. To be eligible for this bursary, applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate program at the University of Manitoba. Students from outside Canada do not qualify for this bursary. The bursary amount varies depending on the student’s financial need and the number of full-time equivalent semester hours the student is planning to take. The bursary amount is determined by a combination of factors, including the university’s fee schedule and the student's financial resources.
The value of each award is set each year in tiers based on high school grade averages. As an example, for the years 2020-2021, the award values were as follows:
- Averages greater than or equal to 95% - $3,000
- Averages greater than or equal to 90% - $2,000
- Averages greater than or equal to 85% - $1,000
- All Nationalities

The International Student Scholarship program awards $2,500 to undergraduate students attending the University of Manitoba. The competition for these awards is very stiff, with over 100 students yearly vying for the prize. The awards are contingent upon the student meeting the outlined criteria.

The Open Educational Resources for International Students program provides awards of $1,500 for undergraduate students to attend the University of Manitoba. The competition for these awards is stiffer than the ISSP, with only 31 students each year vying for the prize. The Open EER program also offers prizes for Honors students and students from countries other than Canada, including the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.
The Graduate/Post-Graduate Scholarship program awards $2,500 to graduate or professional students attending the University of Manitoba. The program also offers reduced awards to students who are attending part-time and are enrolling in an undergraduate degree or higher. The Graduate/Post-Graduate Scholarship program is intended for students achieving a degree or higher. It is not open to students pursuing a bachelor’s or bachelor’s degree.
Living Arrangements For Undergraduates
Some students pursuing a two- or three-year engineering degree may be interested in pursuing a career in the food industry. The Manitoba Working In Food & Beverage program is a hands-on experience that helps students form a career in the food service or hotel industry. The program offers a full-time summer job for two and a half months. Work placements are ongoing, on-campus positions and internships.
Book Grants For International Students
The International Education and Research Council (IERC) funds the Taylor-Cooper Foundation International Travel Grants for students pursuing a two-year or four-year engineering degree from an accredited university in a developing country. The program is intended for students who will be pursuing a career in the engineering or construction field. The grants are for students who are at least 21 years of age.
Manitoba scholarships are not eligible for the Student Loan Repayment Program (SLRP)
The Higher Education Loan Repayment Program (also known as the SLRP) is a federal program that provides need-to-have student loans to students who cannot afford to pay for their education. The repayment period is 50 years, and the amount that a student must pay is determined by a formula that considers modified income and asset values as well as the accrued interest. The program is funded mainly by user fees.
Interested and eligible applicants for the University of Manitoba Undergraduate Student Scholarships 2022-2023 are to apply for admission first and be offered admission to study a full-time course at the University. Candidates offered admission will be automatically provided an eligible international scholarship.
