Scholarship Worth, Benefits, and Duration:

The Award’s value is proportional to your documented financial need and is adequate to cover living expenses as well as tuition for your degree programme.

If you maintain acceptable academic standing in your faculty, continue to demonstrate financial need, and retain your Canadian study permit, the Award may be extended for up to three further years of undergraduate study or until you complete your degree – whichever comes first (student visa).
