If you want to do a Masters/PhD in Canada, and you really need a scholarship, you should consider applying to these 15 schools. (We call them the U15 Universities).

Below, you will see links to ALL the Undergraduate and Graduate (Masters/Ph.D.) programs they have. Check the requirements, apply, and share with others….. There is enough space for everyone.

There are entrance scholarships in most (if not all) of these schools, and you don’t need a separate application for this.

  • You are considered based on info/docs submitted for admission.
  • The scholarship condition, amount, and availability may depend on the program you applied for.

I refer to the U15 universities as Canada’s heavy-pocket universities. They:

  • Receive 79% of all allocated funding.
  • Undertake 80% of all Canadian research worth $8.5 billion yearly.
  • Contribute more than $36 billion to the Canadian economy yearly.
  • Produce more than 75% of all Doctorates awarded.

U15 are your go-to universities for scholarships in Canada. They are:
