700+ short-term exchange scholarships in Canada for international students and faculty

January 18, 2023 – Global Affairs Canada launches its Short-Term Exchange Programs. Over 700 scholarships are available for learners from around the world wishing to study, conduct research or undertake professional development in Canada during the 2023-2024 academic year.

The Short-Term Exchange Programs continue to have the shared goal of promoting partnerships, student mobility and research collaborations between Canadian and international post-secondary institutions.

Interested candidates should contact their home institution’s international office to learn about institutional partnerships and collaborations with Canadian institutions. Home institutions will then provide the eligible candidates’ documentation to their partner post-secondary institution in Canada.

Canadian post-secondary institutions must submit scholarship applications on behalf of students, faculty and international liaison officers/managers from eligible countries by March 21, 2023. Only applications submitted directly by Canadian post-secondary institutions will be considered.
