Question

What scholarships are available?

Answer

Scholarships, bursaries, and awards are an excellent way of minimizing educational debt, as they can help reduce the cost of tuition and other school-related expenses. All Canadian medical schools have their own financial aid offices, where learners can obtain a list of scholarships available to them.

Many resources are available to help learners pay for their medical education. Every faculty of medicine in Canada has a student affairs office that offers financial counselling, see table below. These offices have access to a vast array of resources on a variety of topics of relevance to learners.
