Sheridan announces new entrance scholarships for international students
International students benefiting from expanded suite of financial aid and support.
International students beginning full-time studies in Spring 2022, Fall 2022 or Winter 2023 semesters (with the exception of ESL students) will receive an entrance scholarship ranging from $1,000 to $2,000, depending on their academic program.
Students will be notified of their exact scholarship amount with their offer of admission. These funds will be automatically added to students’ accounts in two equal instalments issued early in the first and second terms of study. Students must remain full-time in term two for the second instalment to be issued.
With over 8,200 international students – studying in person and remotely - from more than 110 countries, Sheridan is proud of the diversity of its international community. The new scholarships will further the college’s commitment of providing exceptional and purposeful learning experiences for all students by making it easier for international students to access Sheridan’s range of programming.
As part of Sheridan’s efforts to establish Peel as a best practice leader for supporting international students together with government and community partners, the college’s researchers recently identified affordability and financial support as critical enablers for international student success.
"International students contribute distinct experiences and perspectives to our community," says Dr. Janet Morrison, President and Vice Chancellor, Sheridan College. "That's why we must provide them with comprehensive supports and resources that can help them flourish regardless of where they are in their academic journey."
In the 2021-22 academic year, Sheridan international students received more than $4M in financial aid through a variety of scholarships, bursaries and awards.
Sheridan also welcomed a $250,000 gift from Scotiabank’s ScotiaRISE program earlier this year that will create on-campus work opportunities for international students. The goal of the funding is to support Sheridan’s Work Study program by increasing opportunities for international students to gain the Canadian work experience that is essential to help them succeed in Canada. International students are currently eligible for a number of scholarships and bursaries, including:
