Awards and Financial Aid


International Students AwardsOver 5% of the student population at The University of Winnipeg are international students. That is close to 500 people from 68 different countries! The University of Winnipeg is dedicated to ensuring that all students have equal access to higher learning. As a result of this mandate there are support services and programs in place like financial assistance to make that happen.

There are a wide variety of ways to fund your education as an international student. Unless otherwise stated, all full-time and part-time students are eligible for Entrance and In-Course awards as long as they meet the published criteria. In addition to these programs, there are also some specific opportunities available just for international students that we would like to highlight for you. Please read our Additional Assistance for International Students poster [PDF].
