Algonquin College welcomes highly qualified students from around the world. The Algonquin International Award is open to international students who have been accepted to an academic program offered at Algonquin College.

The Award is presented to the students with the highest academic performance and/or English language proficiency. More than thirty Algonquin International Awards, each valued at $3,000 CAD, are sent directly to the winning students' accounts to be applied to tuition fees in the next semester

To qualify:

  • You must be an international student, paying full international student fees and not receiving any other scholarships or bursaries.
  • You must be accepted into an academic program at Algonquin College for Fall 2017 intake or Winter 2018 intake.

Eligibility for each type of Award

We also offer eight entrance scholarships for students currently enrolled in our English for Academic Purposes (EAP) program who are transitioning into an academic program at Algonquin. Acceptance is based on your latest transcripts and a personal statement.

For both types of scholarships, your 500-word personal statement should explain how and why you chose your field of study and what skills, knowledge, and contribution you will bring to the program and to Algonquin College. We encourage you to let your passion for your chosen area of study shine through your writing and to triple-check your work for any typos or grammar errors.
