Scholarships and Basketball

 In Parents

A common misconception is that Canadian schools do not offer Athletic Scholarship money for their athletes. Canadian schools do offer scholarship money.

Specifics for scholarships in Canada include:

  1. Tuition and compulsory fees is the maximum amount an athlete can receive for athletic-related awards in an academic year, including athletic-related bursaries.
  2. The value and quantity of athletic-related awards and bursaries available varies from institution to institution.
  3. Specific awards and bursaries may have additional conditions, such as academic success and citizenship.
  4. Many awards, such as academic awards or awards provided by Sport Governing Bodies or the Federal and Provincial Governments, are not included within the tuition and compulsory fees maximum.
