CHN Scholarship

Canada Homestay Network’s Scholarships are awarded to qualified students to give them the ability to stay with a host family, without the cost of room and board, for a designated period.

In addition to high school student applicants, we are accepting applications from students with the following experiences or backgrounds. Applicants who meet more than one of the following criteria have a higher chance of scholarship approval:

  • Post-secondary female student
  • Conflict-affected student
  • Canadian Indigenous student
  • Student from a developing country


CHN will be awarding applications to deserving candidates on a rolling basis. Applications will be processed as they are received.

Please ensure you answer ALL questions before submitting your application.

  • Applications for September 2024 will be processed up to August 9, 2024.
  • Application for February 2025 will be processed up to December 31, 2024.


Only on-line submissions will be accepted. CHN will not accept printed materials. There is not a set scholarship amount, and there is no set timeline. We appreciate your patience.

Applicants must:

  • Be already accepted to a high school in Canada, and able to show proof of such acceptance
  • Have been granted a study visa prior to applying for scholarship to Canada Homestay Network

Applicants should:

  • Respond precisely to the application questions. Confine responses to the spaces provided.
  • Briefly explain any activities, courses, or honors that readers are not likely to understand.
  • Use Items 4-5 and 8-9 to reveal your values, interests, and motivation for studying in Canada and pursuing excellence in community leadership.
  • Note that preference will be given to students who demonstrate contributions and action related to (1) climate change and environmental stewardship, and/or (2) diversity, inclusion, and racial justice.
  • Alert CHN to any unusual circumstances that have limited your activities or affected your grades. Note such restrictions in Item 9 or ask your school to cover them in the Recommendation Letter.
  • CHN will protect sensitive information.

Students may be contacted for further information as part of the evaluation process.

We thank all applicants for their interest, however only those students selected for questions or awards will be contacted.
