Scholarships for international students in Canada
Education can be expensive, especially for international students. For that reason, it is important to leverage financial support services whenever necessary.
Luckily, Acsenda offers different types of scholarships, grants and payment plans that can help international students with their expenses.
Some of the scholarships, student loans and grants include:
Acsenda offers a payment plan option for students who prefer to pay their fees in gradual installments throughout the term. Students can apply for the payment plan in accordance with their respective schedule.
The Canadian government has imposed a mandatory quarantine or isolation in a government-authorized hotel for three days while the person awaits the COVID-19 results, although it excludes any person that is already vaccinated with the eligible two doses of the accepted vaccines. In order to shoulder some of the burden, Acsenda offers a grant that covers the transportation costs from the airport and the hotel that the student is staying during this period.
Covid-19 Quarantine grant
As mentioned before, due to the new regulations of the Canadian government, any person that enters the country and is not fully vaccinated with the accepted vaccines must isolate in a government-authorized hotel for three days at the person’s own cost, which is typically around $2000. For that reason, Acsenda supports students with a grant of up to $1500 (CDN) to help with the additional accommodation costs.
Acsenda accepts student loans provided through the StudentAidBC where the purpose is to help students with the cost of post-secondary education through different alternatives and programs.
In a digital learning environment, a laptop is incredibly necessary for student. As a result, Acsenda offers a laptop purchase grant of up to $600 (CDN).
