Can I get a scholarship to study at Canada direct from doing my form four exams?
Yes, you can definitely get a scholarship to study at Canada after doing your form four exams. In fact, there are many scholarships specifically aimed at students from the African continent who have either just finished their secondary schooling or completed a specific year of university.
For example, Canadian universities offer the African Leaders of Tomorrow Scholarship for international students from Africa and the Commonwealth countries to pursue post-secondary studies in Canada. The aim is to support future leaders in Africa by providing them with an opportunity to gain knowledge from some of the best universities in North America. This scholarship covers tuition fee and other education costs associated with studying for an undergraduate degree program in a Canadian institution.
Similarly, organizations like Global Educational Consultancies also offer scholarships which cover tuition fees and living expenses such as food and lodging costs for applicants wishing to pursue their higher education abroad at places such as Canada. Other such organizations which provide financial aid/scholarship opportunities tailored for international students including those from Africa wanting to continue their studies abroad.
In addition to these funds/grants available through institutions or dedicated organizations above, you may also find local NGO’s or charitable foundations that can support your aspirations financially toward pursuing your Higher Education dreams – especially if you come from low-income backgrounds in rural areas across Sub-Saharan Africa (Kenya being one such country). It’s worth researching these options when considering coming up with a full study plan that encompasses both financial planning and academic requirements necessary prior making any decisions about admission into various universities abroad (in this case Canada).
