University Of Ottawa International English Scholarships

Situated at the heart of Canada’s capital, the University of Ottawa stands as the largest bilingual (English-French) university globally. With proximity to the nation’s esteemed institutions, we offer unparalleled access to a vibrant learning environment.


Our advancements in social sciences, health, engineering, science, and the humanities create a distinctive space for students to thrive, evolve, and achieve greatness.

We take pride in the diversity of our international student community. The Entrance and Excellence Scholarships, average-based and renewable, are specially designed for students from Africa, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, South Korea, India, or Bangladesh. These scholarships apply to those commencing their studies in English in the Fall 2024 term (September start date).

Starting from the fall of 2024, international students from the aforementioned countries will enjoy substantial reductions in their tuition fees. This reduction is applicable when enrolling in eligible undergraduate programs offered in English. All eligible students will automatically receive the scholarship upon enrollment, directly impacting their tuition fees.

Our scholarship program is recognized as one of the most generous in Canada. It not only acknowledges your pre-university academic accomplishments but also values your achievements throughout each term of full-time study at the University. This new scholarship initiative allows African students studying in English to access various pilot programs across three faculties at a significantly reduced tuition cost.

To support students throughout the application process, the University of Ottawa will conduct virtual sessions, addressing queries and providing guidance to prospective students. Join us on this journey of academic excellence and cultural diversity
