The Canada-ASEAN Scholarships and Educational Exchanges for Development (SEED) program is now accepting applications for the 2024-2025 academic year. Canadian post-secondary institutions must apply online on behalf of eligible candidates.
Global Affairs Canada is offering scholarships for students from member states of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) to conduct short-term study or research in Canadian post-secondary institutions in areas that contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. SEED contributes to strengthening people-to-people ties between Canada and the Indo-Pacific region. As part of the expansion of the SEED program under Canada’s Indo-Pacific Strategy , Global Affairs Canada is increasing the number of scholarships that it will be awarding to students from the ASEAN region.
On August 6, 2017, the Government of Canada announced the Canada-ASEAN Scholarships and Educational Exchanges for Development (SEED) program to provide opportunities for students from ASEAN member states to conduct short-term study or research in Canadian post-secondary institutions in areas that contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The Canada-ASEAN Scholarships and Educational Exchanges for Development program aims to reduce poverty in the developing countries of ASEAN and to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Scholarships and educational exchanges will contribute towards the achievement of all Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SEED contributes to strengthening people-to-people ties between Canada and the Indo-Pacific region.
SEED scholarships are facilitated through institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between post-secondary institutions in Canada and their partner institutions in ASEAN countries.
The Canada-ASEAN Scholarships and Educational Exchanges for Development Program is a Short-term Exchange Program under Global Affairs Canada’s International Scholarships Program.
