Every year, STS offers diverse scholarships to allow the greatest number of students to experience an exchange abroad. We believe it is a lifetime chance that everyone should have the opportunity to live.

Run the chance to get your scholarship! Too many students think they have no chance but keep in mind that all scholars tried their luck so why wouldn’t you!

STS has numerous scholarships to offer. Below you will find the name and conditions of our scholarships. On top of those, we often have scholarships dedicated to a specific school or school board. Feel free to inquire. We may have one just for you!

Every year, STS awards scholarships to all successful students who at least meet the following criteria:

  • Above average academic standard (C average minimum)
  • Open, friendly, highly motivated and achievement oriented
  • Ability to be an outstanding ambassador for Canada and STS
  • Aged between 14 and 18 at the time of departure
  • Still attending a Canadian High School upon return from the exchange

You meet those basic criterias? Cool! Now pick the kind of scholarship you want to run for. You can run for all of them if you wish to.
