How to Apply for Scholarships

Updated: Jul 10

Hi, Female Settlers!


Welcome to the FS community; your advice for education, personal finances, financial aid and career opportunities for integrating and thriving in Canada.


One thing I regret while completing my undergrad was not taking advantage of the scholarships available to me. I missed out on so much money just because I did not know what was out there, and partly my university did not do a great job of advertising those opportunities to me. When I became a Financial Aid Advisor, I realized how many scholarships were out there, and I encouraged many students to apply for as many as possible.


The Female Settler has a repository of scholarships from across the country. I encourage you to check the page regularly as we keep adding to the list. Who knows how much you are leaving on the table. Here is how to apply for scholarships through our website.
