Funding for International Applicants

It is important to note that Carleton receives a large number of high quality applications from international students each year.

Funding from Carleton for international students is limited and is only available to a few outstanding international applicants usually, no more than one per program within the Institute of Cognitive Science.

When applying for a Study Permit, you will be required to show that you can support yourself during your studies to the Citizenship and Immigration Centre office.

You may wish to consult your own government website as some governments offer funding to outstanding students when pursuing their studies abroad. In addition, you can visit for a listing of scholarships available to international students provided by the Government of Canada.

Estimating the cost of a year at Carleton University will vary depending on your program on study and lifestyle preferences. To view the current tuition fees and the estimated cost of living in the Ottawa area, please visit the International Students Office.
