Scholarship Value and Duration
1. Funding for Canada-CARICOM Leadership Scholarships is made available by Global Affairs Canada through its legal title: the Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD).

2. The Canadian institution will receive funding from DFATD for all successful candidates (students and researchers) in the form of a contribution agreement and will be responsible for providing the funds to scholarship recipients.

3. The scholarship value varies depending on the duration and level of study. The scholarship value for students is:
  • $7,200 CAN for college, undergraduate or graduate (Master’s and PhD) students for a minimum of four months or one academic term of study or research;
  • $9,700 CAN for graduate students (Master’s and PhD) for a period of five or six months of study or research; or
  • $14,700 CAN for undergraduate and college students for a period of eight months of study or research.

In addition to the funds allocated to the recipients by DFATD, the Canadian host institution may also claim $300 CAN per scholarship recipient to assist with administrative costs once the scholarship recipient arrives in Canada.


Eligible expenses
Canadian institutions will disburse scholarship funds to the scholarship recipient to contribute to the following costs:
  • visa and/or study/work permit fees;
  • airfare, for the scholarship recipient only, to Canada by the most direct and economical route and return airfare upon completion of the scholarship;
  • health insurance;
  • living expenses;

  • must be enrolled full-time at a post-secondary institution in an eligible country and paying any tuition fees regulated by that institution for the full duration of the exchange.

  • conducting research must arrive in Canada for the uptake of their award between June 1, 2017 but no later than February 1, 2018.

In exceptional cases, and with prior approval from DFATD, the arrival deadline may be extended to March 1, 2018; and
  • must ensure that they have appropriate health insurance for the full duration of the scholarship, as per the policies of the Canadian institution.

Important information:
For college and undergraduate applications, a written institutional collaboration and student exchange agreement or memorandum of understanding between the Canadian institution and the candidate’s home institution must be in place at the time of application.

For graduate applications, an inter-institutional agreement is desirable but not mandatory. If there is no existing exchange agreement, graduate applications which involve a new or established collaboration between professors from a Canadian institution and the candidate's home institution will be accepted.

Applications submitted directly by a candidate or their home institution will not be accepted.
Scholarships cannot be deferred and are not renewable.

Priority will be given to candidates who have not previously received a scholarship under the Canada-CARICOM Leadership Scholarships Program, the Canada-CARICOM Faculty Leadership Program, the Canada-Chile Leadership Exchange Scholarship or the Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program.

Scholarships are not taxable for either the Canadian institution or the scholarship recipient.

Application Process
Only applications submitted directly by Canadian institutions will be considered.
