Partner Scholarship Application


Our university partners are very keen to help more Canadian students study on their campus. They also know that costs and access to funding can be a common determining factor on whether a Canadian student is able to fulfill their dream of studying in the UK. To help support Canadian students, some of our partner universities have offered exclusive scholarships for the coming academic year. These unique scholarships are available to students applying with Across the Pond. 

Available Partner Scholarships

University of York

Award: 1 scholarship of £15,000 awarded to a bachelor's or master's student starting in autumn 2024. The scholarship will be distributed as a £15,000 tuition fee waiver applied to the first academic year only.

Eligible applicants: Canadian students (international fee-paying) who will be completing a bachelor's or master's degree at the University of York, and who have applied via Across the Pond. The scholarship only applies to the academic year 2024/25 starting in the autumn of 2024 and cannot be deferred.  The scholarship is available for most subject areas at the university, but there are some exceptions. Ask your student advisor if the degree you wish to study at the University of York qualifies for this award. The scholarship cannot be combined with other scholarships offered through the university or Across the Pond. Additional rules may apply, please ask your advisor for a complete list. 

Application deadline: 22 April 2024 

Application instructions: Follow the instructions at the bottom of the page to submit your application.



The scholarships are available to international students who apply through Across the Pond. You must have applied for autumn admission to the university where the Across the Pond partner scholarship is available, but you do not need to have been offered a place or decided on where you will go at the moment of applying for the scholarship. 



Across the Pond will contact scholarship winners as soon as possible after the application deadline. The university must approve the winning entry before the winner can be confirmed. To receive the scholarship, you must start studying at the university which has awarded you the scholarship, from next autumn. The scholarship itself (reduced tuition fees) will be agreed directly with the university.

❗Your Across the Pond student advisor will be happy to give you tips and advice on how to apply for various scholarships and on what else you can do to make your money last when you study in the UK.
