As a smaller university, Concordia University of Edmonton has a history of providing high quality education and a tradition of personal care for students. Planning ahead is the best way to put in place the financial resources to attend Concordia. While students attending university on a study permit are not eligible for Canadian federal, provincial, and territorial financial assistance, Concordia University of Edmonton does offer some scholarships and bursaries for qualified international students after arriving. Here are a few links for some other websites with useful information to get you started:

High School International Students
University Entrance Scholarship Program
International undergraduate students must apply for admission by April 1st and begin their studies in September to be considered for a University Entrance Scholarship or a University Transfer Scholarship.
Concordia Bursary Program
International undergraduate students may also apply for bursary assistance (based on financial need) once they are attending Concordia University of Edmonton. Although international students are expected to have the funds necessary to cover tuition fees, living expenses and transportation before coming to Canada to study, there may be circumstances that arise creating financial need.
Concordia General Awards Program
Earning scholarships and awards is another way to help cover the cost of your education. Current international undergraduate students can apply for these awards every year they attend Concordia University of Edmonton.
Students who are citizens of countries other than Canada are encouraged to contact officials of their own government for financial assistance options.
Graduate International Students
Graduate International students are eligible to apply for financial assistance through the Concordia Bursary Program. Additionally, there are program specific scholarships that you may be eligible to receive. Please review the scholarships and awards information for graduate students.
