  3. Thanks Olu for this! Please, I’m looking for Undergraduate Scholarships that accept applications without English Proficiency Exams( like IELTS). Can you help me with that?

  4. Goodevening Mr Olu, Please is there any undergraduate scholarship for Medicine in Canada, Please I want to really know if there are Undergraduate Scholarships for Medicine in Canada, please Sir give a reply to this comment, please

    1. There are only 17 medical schools in Canada, and International students are rarely admitted into the programs. So there are also no scholarships to study medicine for international students.

  5. Hi. Thank you so much for this post.
    I checked out the International Dean’s scholarship for University of Saskatchewan.
    One of the requirements is proof of research activity in journal publications or conference presentations. I didn’t really get it.
    Do final year projects count? And how do I do if my research project wasn’t published?

    1. Undergrad thesis doesn’t count except it is published. You can connect with your undergrad supervisor to see what can be done on publishing the research work. The supervisor will typically be the first author.

    1. You can click on the link on each scholarship, it takes you to their school website with more info on how to apply. For some you only need to apply for admission to be considered for scholarship (meaning no separate scholarship application).

  6. Pls can someone submit application to different universities, Hope it won’t jeopardize someone’s chance
    Thank you Sir
