Scholarships Canada is a free website with an extensive database (80,000+ scholarships!) that lists numerous scholarship opportunities in detail. When you register you will provide information ranging from your year of study to your hobbies, which will be used as keywords to run through their system. At the end of the process, you will have an inbox of awards that are appropriate for you based on the information you supplied. In addition, they have a number of sister websites that provide a comprehensive system for guiding students through the post-secondary experience: School Finder, Study in Canada and Grad School Finder. Scholarships Canada also offers online webinars on a number of different topics and newsletters.
Formerly known as Student Awards, this was rebranded as yconic in December 2014. This is also a free website where you complete a registration process and an inbox of scholarships is created for you. yconic also has an online community, where you can interact with other students. In the event that you are wondering whether recipients have been contacted regarding a certain scholarship or if you are interested in hearing other students’ experience with a particular program, you can post a thread on the forum to ask other students or browse through first as the question may have already been asked and answered.
