Migrating to Canada through education: 22 Postgraduate scholarships to apply for in 2022 

In recent climes, Canada is still considered a premiere study location, with the many opportunities for international students and the ease of naturalization in the country. 

There are a number of ways to migrate to Canada including education, LMI aid, and express entry, but it is not exactly easy to raise the funds needed for a big move. 

Scholarships have been a sure way to manage the cost of tuition when studying abroad, and a lot of universities overseas and other scholarship boards award scholarships to international students. 

Canadian scholarships are different in the sense that you literally get paid to study in their institutions, but there is a twist; You would need to be interested in pursuing a research course, not a taught course.
