This renewable scholarship is offered to international students who are citizens of African countries, who are admitted in the Fall 2022 term (September start date) or later with an admission average of 80% or higher, who are studying in English, and who enroll in one of the specified undergraduate programs in the faculties of Engineering, Science, or Social Sciences.



“This significant financial contribution to their education reduces their tuition fees by $17,500 to $25,000 for the excellence scholarships and by $12,000 to $20,000 for the entrance scholarships, depending on the program annually.


“All students who are eligible for this scholarship will automatically receive it upon enrolment. It will be applied directly to their tuition fees.


“The Entrance scholarship cannot be combined with the Excellence Scholarship for African Students Studying in English.”
