Applying to the program

How to apply

Applications are available online for students currently registered at McGill. To apply, log in to Minerva:

  • Select the Financial Aid/Awards tab > Financial Aid Menu > Apply for McGill Financial Aid > Apply to Work Study> Update your financial aid profile> Submit your application

Work Study does not guarantee employment as hiring decisions are made by participating employers.

When to apply

Applications can be submitted starting July 1st for the upcoming academic year and are assessed on a rolling basis, except during peak periods when recommended submission dates apply. (Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis throughout the academic year but it is highly recommended that students apply in the summer for the coming academic year.) Students who apply by early August will know whether or not they have been accepted by the beginning of the Fall term and will have access to more jobs. 

Students must re-apply each year for Work Study.
