Yeshiva University is committed to making our unique education affordable to every admitted student. For Canadian students, YU's Office of Student Finance is fully aware of factors like the relative strength of the U.S. and Canadian dollars, the cost of day school education for siblings, travel costs for visits home, etc.

To help finance a Yeshiva University education, Canadian students benefit from a variety of special scholarships. Our initiatives include the Jewish Education Scholarship Programme (JESP), a three-way partnership of Canadian donors, Canadian students and YU to train educators for Canadian Jewish schools.
