Canada has become one of the most favorite destinations for individuals who desire international education. Many Fraudsters are capitalizing on this need to swindle many desperate students. We have also noticed the high financial cost that many agencies charge applicants who want to study in Canada. Although Canada offers an indisputably world-class high-quality education and relatively cheaper tuition fees compared to other developed countries such as America, Australia and the UK, underprivileged international students yet lack the wherewithal to pay such tuition fees and even individuals and families who do not qualify as low-income can need assistance paying for tuitions. Very few parents are able and willing to pay full price for any college or school especially in a developed country. As a popular destination for international students with rich multiculturalism and an opportunity to remain in the country after graduation, there are lots of other challenges awaiting studying in Canada that require mentorship to become opportunities for academic success, career excellence and spiritual growth in the Christian journey and other benefits.
CASSOC provides solutions to these situations and we also offer more by providing scholarship opportunities and all-round mentoring to all our Student-members. CASSOC is a far charitable means of immigrating to Canada for Academic purposes. It is very instructive to also note that CASSOC is fully Anti-Money Laundering /Combating the Financing of Terrorism (AML/ CFT) registered and compliant.
Christian Academic Scholarship Society of Canada (CASSOC) is a Not-For-Profit Organization in Canada that is licensed to Offer Academic Scholarships to selected student members of the organization. In addition to the scholarship scheme, all student members enjoy free admission processing, supportive visa applications, Godly mentoring and more. CASSOC student membership also fosters the network of assistance between members both in Canada and abroad.
Christian Academic Scholarship Society of Canada (CASSOC) knows that this is the end-time as we eagerly await the return of our Lord and Messiah, Jesus Christ.
Daniel, Meshach, Shadrach and Abednego immigrated and brought the presence and manifestation of God from Israel to Babylon. Also Joseph immigrated and brought the Divine gift of interpretation of dreams to Egypt. CASSOC has an assignment to bring future Daniels, Josephs, Shadrachs, Meshachs and Abednegos to Canada from their different countries. CASSOC shall mentor such people into their God-given destinies and they will consequently bring true revival to Canada or return to bring the impact of their Canadian education and spiritual prowess to their respective countries.

CASSOC is ready and more than willing to sponsor students into Canada for students into Canada for Certificate/Diploma Studies. All student members requesting for scholarship will have to participate in a Scholarship assessment. This is a Computer-Based-Test (CBT) and will test Basic Mathematics, Basic English fluency and Deep Spiritual Knowledge about the Holy Bible in the ratio of 30%, 30% and 40 % respectively. To be awarded scholarship, you will need to score above the cut-off mark in the scholarship assessment, also pass your interview session and finally obtain a study permit in Canada.
The CASSOC Full Scholarship program is for a two-year post-secondary or postgraduate Diploma/certificates program at Colleges of Applied Arts and Science while the CASSOC Tuition-Discount scholarship program is for Pre-University/High school educational institutions in Canada.
CASSOC, out of the four, has three different Scholarship options in varying degrees for the two-year post-secondary or post-graduate programs at Colleges of Applied Arts and Science in Canada. The fourth scholarship option is a Tuition-discount Scholarship for students applying to get into High Schools or Pre-University education in Canada.
A: Hence, in the CASSOC suite of four types of Scholarships, Student members interested in the funding options will need to indicate what type of scholarship they desire. They are:
1.) The Full Ride Scholarship (FRS): The Full Ride Scholarship (C$ 65,000) covers both the School fees and also your living expenses for the 2-year education in Canada. This implies that the FRS takes care of virtually every expense related to your Education and Residence in Canada. The Scholarship Assessment cut-off mark for the FRS is higher. This is for two years of post-secondary or post-graduate education.
2.) The Full Tuition Plus Scholarship (FTPS): In contrast, the Full Tuition Plus Scholarship (C$ 52,500) covers the School fees for the two-year education and also your living expenses for one-year in Canada. This implies that the student will be responsible for living expenses for only the second year (C$ 12,500). The Scholarship Assessment Cut-off marks for the FTPS is lower than FRS cut-off mark but higher than FTS cut-off mark. This is for two years of post-secondary or post-graduate education.
3.) The Full Tuition Scholarship (FTS): The Full Tuition Scholarship (C$ 40,000) covers only the School fees for the two-year education. This implies that the student will be responsible for living expenses for the entire two years (C$ 25,000). The Scholarship Assessment Cut-off marks for the FTS is the lowest. This is for two years of post-secondary or post-graduate education.
4.) The Tuition-Discount Scholarship (TDS): The TDS is for students applying to get into Secondary/High Schools or Re-University education in Canada. Successful student members shall receive a $5,000 tuition discount which will be deducted from their school fees.
CASSOC Full series of scholarship is primarily aimed at sponsoring selected students from families who cannot afford Canadian education for a two post -secondary program in Canada, while the Tuition –Discount Scholarship is basically to offer financial relief to students from families that can partially afford Canadian education.
Students need to take the scholarship assessment if they are interested in any of the scholarship options.
Doing the scholarship assessment is optional for student members who are not interested in our CASSOC scholarship and they are still entitled to all other student membership benefits. CASSOC will help process their admission while they take care of their school fees and living expenses either through CASSOC or their own alternative ways.
Student members who meet the qualifying cut-off marks will also pass through an Interview process with our CASSOC Coordinator in Canada before the scholarships are granted.
We mentor all our student members irrespective of whether they are able to get our scholarship or not. Mentorship is virtually accessible to all student members irrespective of their location internationally especially in Canada. Face to face mentoring is available in Canada for those who strictly want only this type of mentoring for their children.
