Scholarships Canada is a free website with an extensive database (80,000+ scholarships!) that lists numerous scholarship opportunities in detail. When you register you will provide information ranging from your year of study to your hobbies, which will be used as keywords to run through their system.
At the end of the process, you will have an inbox of awards that are appropriate for you based on the information you supplied. In addition, they have a number of sister websites that provide a comprehensive system for guiding students through the post-secondary experience: School Finder, Study in Canada and Grad School Finder.
Scholarships Canada also offers online webinars on a number of different topics and newsletters.
The Student Financial Assistance website is run by the Government of Canada. This resource provides information on Canadian post-secondary education.
If you live in British Columbia or are planning to study in British Columbia, Education Planner BC can help you compare post-secondary options.
We help with the cost of post-secondary education through student loans, grants, and scholarships. StudentAidBC also has programs that help with loan repayment.
