Work Study Program

The Scholarships and Student Aid Office runs a work study program that creates part-time on-campus jobs for students. Applicants are evaluated primarily according to their financial need. You can apply if you are registered full time in a degree program, are in satisfactory academic standing and demonstrate financial need.

Employment opportunities on campus pop up both during the academic year and during the summer. Some — but not all — jobs will be posted on the McGill Career Planning Service (CaPS) website.

You can consult the list of area personnel officers here.
