Lester B. Pearson Scholarship Program 2024/2025 For International Students – University Of Toronto


This International Scholarship Program at the University of Toronto intends to provide opportunities for excellent international students who display special academic success and creativity as well as who are notable in the school as leaders. Equally, the students must prove the special impact they have had on the life of their school and community, and their future potential to contribute positively to the global community. Given yearly, the scholarships aim to recognize outstanding students from all over the world. Included are international students studying at Canadian high schools. Undoubtedly, this is the University of Toronto’s most important and competitive scholarship for international students.


The Lester B. Pearson International Scholarships will cover tuition, books, incidental fees, and full residence support.
