The Merit Scholarships program and the exemptions for foreign students are offered in order to attract the best international candidates to study in Québec.
The Merit Scholarships program allows recipients to benefit from:
- a scholarship that provides financial assistance during their studies
- an exemption from the supplementary fees payable by foreign students
- health insurance protection provided by the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec (RAMQ)
Exemptions from differential tuition fees allow selected candidates to be exempted from the supplementary fees normally paid by foreign students.
