Admissions Funding

When you submit an application to a program, administrators will automatically consider you for a possible admissions funding offer at the same time — a separate application is generally not required. This funding from Carleton is limited to only a few outstanding international applicants and, if you are eligible for this funding, you will be notified on your Offer of Admission and Funding.

External Awards

Additionally, you should consider applying for an external financial award. These awards are provided by an organization, agency or council outside of Carleton and require a separate application — often one full year before the award begins.

Government Funding

You may also wish to consult your own government website as some governments offer funding to outstanding students when pursuing their studies abroad. In addition, you can visit for a listing of scholarships available to international students provided by the Government of Canada.

International Agreements

Carleton has signed agreements with the following countries and/or agencies, many of which provide joint-funding for international students wishing to pursue their master’s or doctoral studies at Carleton.
