The Government of Quebec, in partnership with the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF), offers scholarships to French-speaking students wishing to study in Quebec, Canada. These scholarships offer an exemption from additional tuition fees, allowing recipients to pay the same tuition fees as Quebec students, as well as a monthly allowance, installation assistance, a round-trip flight ticket, and travel insurance. All fields of study are eligible. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2024.

The scholarships for exemption from additional tuition fees are offered by the Government of Quebec, while the other benefits are provided by AUF.

Founded in 1961, its headquarters is in Montreal, Canada. AUF is present in over 100 countries and has around 1000 member institutions.
