UdeM exemption scholarship for international students

The UdeM exemption scholarship program is designed to support international candidates in their university studies. Starting in the fall of 2020, they could benefit from an exemption from the tuition fees normally charged to international students. The granting of scholarships continues for the winter 2023, summer 2023, fall 2023 and winter 2024 sessions.

The goal of this program is to help the best talent from around the world attend one of the finest francophone research universities in the world. In turn, these international students will help fulfil our educational mission by enriching the cultural diversity of the Université de Montréal community.

Who can benefit from this scholarship program?

The UdeM exemption scholarship is intended for international students (except French and French-speaking Belgian students). To be eligible, the candidate must:

  • have received an offer of admission to a study program at UdeM as of Fall 2020

  • have valid study authorizations (CAQ and study permit) for all sessions of their study program. For more information, please see the web page on immigration procedures

  • be continuously enrolled full time (unless absence is approved) for their entire study program

  • not enroll in an independent study program

  • not be admitted to the following undergraduate programs starting with the Winter 2024 session: certificate, major, minor, short program and preparatory year program for university studies

If one of the above conditions is not met, the UdeM exemption scholarship may be withdrawn.
