International Student Scholarships

International students who intend to study at Canisius College may be eligible for a scholarship. Scholarship amounts vary and are based on previous academic achievement. Canisius does not award full-tuition scholarships.

International Merit Based Scholarships

All undergraduate international students will be reviewed for a merit scholarship upon review for admission.
