Global Affairs Canada is offering short-term scholarships to students from member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) wishing to study or conduct research in Canadian post-secondary institutions at college, undergraduate and graduate levels.

Canadian post-secondary academic institutions can now submit scholarship applications on behalf of students from eligible countries by 17 April 2018. Only applications submitted directly by Canadian post-secondary academic institutions will be considered.
