Concordia University Undergraduate Scholarships for International student

 Colors of Concordia Award

The Colors of Concordia Award was established in 2005 through the fundraising efforts of members and friends of the Colors of Concordia Team, which has had over 200 participants from 62 countries in Montréal's annual Tour de l'Ile for several years.The guiding philosophy of the Colors of Concordia Team, and the Colors of Concordia Award, resides in promoting awareness, cooperation, cultural integration and communication, and the bringing together of different cultural communities.As such, the purpose of this award is to encourage and reward a full-time or part-time Undergraduate student (ambassador) at Concordia, who has demonstrated initiative in trying to unite people from different cultures (religious, ethnic, sovereign) and who remains committed to promoting cultural integration. This award is open to Canadian Citizens, Permanent Residents, and International Students.
