The Scholarships and Student Aid Office administers both McGill’s financial aid program and all government student aid programs. McGill’s need-based financial aid program includes short term loans, limited bursary assistance, and a Work Study program. In addition, the Scholarships and Student Aid Office offers advice on debt management and budget counselling.
All applicants for McGill financial aid must first apply for the maximum government assistance for which they are eligible:
- Citizens, and permanent residents, of Canada are eligible for federal and provincial government loans.
- Citizens, and permanent residents, of the United States are eligible for US government loans.
- International students are eligible for McGill financial aid, but not for provincial government aid (unless they become permanent residents).
