Ollivier Dyens, Deputy Provost, Student Life and Learning

McGill is thrilled to partner with The MasterCard Foundation to offer The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at McGill.

The 21st Century will be marked by a convergence of ideas and peoples from around the world. With an international campus serving diverse communities, McGill is uniquely placed to foster students’ development as global citizens empowered to meet local challenges.

McGill holds a strong commitment to providing access to education and opportunity, while celebrating the cultural and intellectual diversity of our university community. Thanks to the generous support of The MasterCard Foundation, McGill is furthering these objectives while welcoming 91 talented students to McGill over the course of the Scholars Program. Together, we will make long-term differences in  communities and countries around the world. 

While at McGill, MasterCard Foundation Scholars benefit from and contribute to our innovative academics, our leading research and our supportive environment. The Student Life and Learning team provides Scholars – and all McGill students – with a network of support to ensure that they thrive at McGill and in Montreal as they develop their full potential as students and global citizens.
