This Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Award’s worth is significantly linked to your level of financial need. Calculating how much money you and your family may contribute each year is done by adding together your tuition, fees, and living expenses. A typical needs analysis is built on the financial data that you and your family have submitted.

Your scholarship may be extended for up to three more years of undergraduate study or until you complete your degree, whichever comes first, providing you maintain your Canadian study permit, demonstrate continued financial need, and maintain good academic standing in your faculty (student visa).

To be considered for the Karen McKellin International Leader of Tomorrow Study Award:

  • You must be an international student who will be studying in Canada on a Canadian study permit.
