Scholarships and student aid


If you have been awarded an entrance scholarship, you will receive a letter from the Scholarships and Student Aid Office. The offer of entrance scholarship must be accepted by the deadline for accepting admission to McGill.

Scholarships are credited directly to your fee account – one half prior to the due date of your Fall fees, and the other half in early January. You can keep track of your account on Minerva.

For complete information on scholarships visit the Scholarships sites.

If you have received a Faculty scholarship from the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, please see your scholarship letter for payment details.

Accept your offer of award

If you have been offered an entrance scholarship or bursary, respond to the offer by logging into Minerva and selecting the Financial Aid Awards menu.

Student aid

Students accepted to McGill may apply for need-based financial aid programs. These include an Entrance Bursary program, an In-Course Loan and Bursary program, and a Work Study program.

  • The Scholarships and Student Aid Office also administers all government student aid programs for Canadians, Permanent Residents and U.S. citizens.
  • Canadians and Permanent Residents apply directly to the province or territory in which they are considered a resident. Make sure you apply before June 30 to ensure your government funding arrives by September.
  • US citizens and permanent residents apply for the Direct Loan Program. Make sure you apply before June 1 to ensure your US government funding arrives in the fall.
