Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program

Awards available to students from other Commonwealth countries for graduate study in Canada

The Government of Canada offers scholarships as part of the Commonwealth Scholarship Plan (CSP). These scholarships are tenable at recognized public Canadian institutions and affiliated research institutes only.

The Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program (CCSP) is designed to provide opportunities for students of other Commonwealth countries to pursue research and studies in Canada.

The Scholarships are intended for men and women of high intellectual promise who may be expected to make a significant contribution to their own countries on their return from study in Canada.

The Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program is funded by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) which also determines the number of scholarships available each year. The agency responsible for financial and administrative matters is the Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE).

Awards available under this program include:

Graduate Students' Exchange Program (GSEP) Awards available to citizens enrolled full-time in selected countries for research in Canada (including the Canada-Caribbean Community Leadership Scholarships)

Eligible countries include:

Latin America and the Caribbean region:
Anguilla, Antigua & Barbuda, Bahamas, Barbados, Belize, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Dominica, Falkland Islands, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, Montserrat, Saint Helena, Saint Kitts, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad & Tobago, Turks & Caicos

The Black Business and Professional Association would like to invite Canadian undergrads to participant in the largest scholarship program in Canada. We are therefore kindly asking you to share this information about our scholarships within your network.

Each year, the BBPA National Scholarships award 50 Black students pursuing post-secondary studies with various scholarships. These scholarships are donated by individuals, organizations and corporations. The BBPA National Scholarships administers these scholarships in trust to students who are talented, upstanding members of their community, and are determined not to allow financial challenges to deter their success.

The BBPA National Scholarships were established in 1986 and has remained dedicated to assisting and recognizing the achievement of academic excellence by Black Canadian youth, through an annual scholarship program. The scholarships are granted to students enrolled in higher education and are based on a number of criteria, including academic performance, financial need and community service.

This year will be our 32nd Anniversary, marking one of our organization’s major milestones in supporting the community and assisting our youth in striving for excellence as they continue to make history and shape our global society.

The fund receives annual, financial donations from some of Canada’s most profitable corporations, organizations and successful individuals, all of whom share its mission to support the education and development of Canada’s future leaders.

The BBPA is thrilled to offer such an inspiring program and we encourage all to apply. The deadline for the 2018 BBPA National Scholarships will be June 29, 2018.
