The Coady International Institute offers a range of full and partial scholarships.
Thanks to the generous financial support of Global Affairs Canada, as well as a number of individual and institutional donors, the Coady International Institute is able to offer partial scholarships to most candidates accepted into the Institute’s training programs. Specific scholarships are available through The MasterCard Foundation Microfinance Scholars Program for certificates in the Coady Institute’s Community-Based Microfinance and Livelihoods and Markets.
The Institute is rarely able to provide 100% scholarship. A limited number of travel awards may be allocated each year for the Diploma in Development Leadership Program. When completing the application form applicants will be asked if they wish to be considered for a scholarship and how they intend to cover the remaining costs of the program such as travel, visa application and fees not covered by a scholarship. Once a candidate is accepted into a Coady program, s/he will be informed of the level of scholarship support offered as well as the balance of costs for which the candidate is responsible.
