International Business Scholarships

Posted on: Nov 12, 2014

Youth Education Program through Export Development Canada

Through the Youth Education Program, EDC helps build the capacity of the next generation of business leaders by awarding scholarships to Canadian students with a demonstrated interest in international business.

Export Development Canada created the International Business Scholarships because international trade is critical to Canada’s economic prosperity and EDC dedicated to helping students – the next generation of business leaders – to succeed.

EDC awards up to 30 scholarships annually, 25 of which go to undergraduate university or college students interested in pursuing a career or furthering their studies in international business, with up to 5 additional scholarships for students in programs which combine business with environmental or sustainability studies. An EDC scholarship is worth a $4,000 cash award.

The application process starts in November and ends in early February. Scholarships are awarded in spring, and issued in autumn at the start of each academic year.
