First and foremost, we encourage you to make inquiries with organizations in the country where you hold citizenship or permanent residency status.

York University (with which Glendon is affiliated) offers scholarships and bursaries to international students. It also administers on-campus employment programs as a means of financial aid. To be considered for a scholarship, bursary, or on-campus employment program, you must complete and submit your Student Financial Profile (SFP) online. You will need to resubmit your SFP at the start of each academic session (once for the fall/winter session and once for the summer session).
