Any applicant for an OAS-placed award will be required, as part of the placement process, to provide proof of proficiency in the language of instruction via a Language Certificate. For studies in the United States, Canada and/or the English-speaking Caribbean, official TOEFL scores will be necessary. These test results must be included in your application package.
  8. Provide satisfactory scores for any admission and standardized tests (GRE or GMAT), if required by the institutions, if you are an OAS-placed candidate intending to study in the United States or Canada. You will be responsible for the cost of these tests. Because of the importance of standardized tests scores for the technical evaluation of applications, these tests results must be included in the application package. Please check admission requirements for the program of studies that you are interested in.
  9. Be aware that if, after a reasonable period, the OAS or its third-party administrator is unsuccessful in negotiating your placement at one of three universities or programs of study, then the OAS offer will be cancelled with no right to appeal. 
  10. Agree to return to reside in the sponsoring country for a period of no less than twenty-four months after completing the program of study covered by the scholarship (if you are awarded an OAS scholarship), if you are an on-site student.  If you are applying for online studies, you must agree to remain in the sponsoring country for the same period of time.
