Sponsored Student Program
Sponsored students are international students who are either partially or fully supported throughout their studies by their governments, national or multinational companies, or third-party entities such as Fulbright. Support normally includes tuition, associated fees, and living expenses.
Our Sponsored Student Program (SSP) provides individualized support to these students and their sponsoring organizations, ensuring a smooth transition through the application process into life as a University of Alberta student.
UAlberta has welcomed students funded by organizations such as:
- Petronas Malaysia
- Bolashak Presidential Scholarship Program
- King Abdullah Scholarship Program
- China Scholarship Council
- Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training
- Ministry of Education of Azerbaijan
- Ministry of Higher Education of Egypt
- Academic and Professional Programs for the Americas (LASPAU)
- Universidad de Los Andes
- Canadian Commonwealth Scholarship Program
Note: The SSP does not provide funding to students; our office provides support to students who have either already obtained or will be seeking third-party sponsorship funding to attend the University of Alberta.
