We thank you for your interest. The deadline to apply has now passed.

Global Affairs Canada is proud to announce the Flight PS752 Commemorative Scholarship Program, a tribute to those who tragically lost their lives in the Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 disaster on January 8, 2020. Fifty-five Canadian citizens and thirty permanent residents were among the 176 people killed in this tragedy. Among these victims were brilliant minds and dedicated students who made significant contributions to Canadian educational institutions. To honour their legacies, we are offering 176 scholarships, in the name of each of the victims, to international and Canadian students studying in colleges and universities in Canada. If your field of study aligns with the victims’ academic and professional backgrounds or focuses on air disaster prevention, you are eligible to apply.
