Scholarship Overview

The application period for the Government of Canada International Scholarship is open. Canadian government scholarships 2023 are available for graduate students from all over the world. A total of 166 scholarships will be awarded to highly qualified graduates who are interested in studying in Canada and carrying out research that will benefit humanity. The scholarship is open to all international students who are also Canadian citizens or permanent residents of Canada.


PhD programmes, MA/PhD, MD/PhD, or master’s degrees that lead to PhDs are eligible for this scholarship. Canada will fund the PhD programme for three years. We are looking for outstanding candidates with leadership skills and academic accomplishments for our doctoral scholarship program. Graduate scholarships are awarded based on three fundamental factors: academic excellence, leadership potential, and research promise.


The organization was founded by Georges P. Vanier, a Canadian soldier and the country’s first governor general. There is a slight difference between the application process and the standard scholarship application. Individuals cannot apply alone. Those who wish to nominate someone should contact their research institute, or the institute may do so itself.
