There is very little financial aid for international students who wish to study in Canada or the United States from other countries. Students from the US and Canada who wish to study in other countries can get student loans in their own country to study abroad. The same thing applies to students from other countries wishing to study in Canada or the US.
However, there are some programs that will assist international students. These include:
In Canada, the National Research Council awards scholarships so that US and international students can study for graduate degrees in Canadian universities. Getting financial aid for international students is very difficult because only a small number of schools and universities in Canada and the US offer fellowships and bursaries to students from other countries. Most students receive loans from their home countries to study abroad and the tuition fees for international students are usually higher than for those from the country.Canadian universities that have been accredited by the US Department of Education do qualify for the same financial aid as you would receive for studying within the US. The same thing applies for Canadians wishing to study in the US. For example, chiropractic colleges in the US regularly have Canadian students with financial aid from the Canadian government.
