EDC created the International Business Scholarships because international trade is critical to Canada’s economic prosperity and we’re dedicated to helping students like YOU – the next generation of business leaders – to succeed. We award up to 30 scholarships annually, 25 of which go to undergraduate university or college students interested in pursuing a career or furthering their studies in international business, with up to 5 additional scholarships for students in programs which combine business with environmental or sustainability studies. An EDC scholarship is worth a $4,000 cash award. Scholarships will be awarded in spring 2012, and issued in autumn 2012 at the start of the academic year.
