Graduate scholarships for Canadians in South Korea


If you’re a Canadian student studying in South Korea and want to study at a top university, the scholarship program can help. There are various types of scholarships available for Canadians, ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. Scholarship eligibility varies by program; most programs require students to have completed high school or equivalent before applying for financial assistance. Some scholarships offer renewal as long as recipients maintain their grades and/or other requirements set forth by their school or institution.

Scholarship eligibility

  • You must be a Canadian citizen located in Alberta.

  • You must be enrolled in a graduate program at a South Korean university. The scholarship is open only to students who have already completed their undergraduate degree, except for those with an MSc (Master of Science) or Ph.D.

  • Your GPA must be at least 3.0 and your TOEFL score should be 550 or higher if you are applying for the scholarship based on financial need only; however, it would not hurt your chances if you had higher grades than this requirement as well!

Selection process

The selection process for Canadian graduate scholarships varies by scholarship. Some scholarships are for specific programs, others are for general study and some are available to any field of study. Some scholarships require that you be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada; others will accept foreign nationals from outside North America (the USA, Canada, and Mexico).


Deadlines are an important factor to consider when applying for a scholarship. The earlier you apply, the better your chances of getting accepted. However, if your deadline is later than most applicants’ deadlines, then that may mean that there will be fewer spots available for Canadians in South Korea by that time.

You can apply for multiple scholarships at once! This means that if you have more than one option (like two), then it’s ok to apply for both of them simultaneously so that they can both be considered together when considering which ones came through first and which ones came last.

Scholarships range in value and many are renewable. Apply early!

The amount of money you receive will vary, but most scholarships are worth between $500 and $3,000. Some may be renewable over multiple years while others only offer one year’s support. Your eligibility for a scholarship depends on your degree program, so it’s important to check with your school before applying for one.
