Work Study Program
The Work Study Program offers students with financial need access to clerical, research, technical, library or other jobs on campus or in some of the McGill-affiliated hospitals and organizations. The program not only helps students financially but can develop career-related skills and experience.
Acceptance to the program is based primarily on financial need. Students may apply if they are registered full time in a degree program, are in satisfactory academic standing and demonstrate financial need. In order to be considered for Work Study, students must apply and be receiving the maximum government aid for which they are eligible.

Students are expected to work during the summer months in order to save for the upcoming academic year. Work Study authorization usually includes the summer term providing the student is not scheduled to graduate at the end of the current academic year. Students approved for the fall and/or winter terms may inquire about extending current Work Study authorization to include the summer term by sending an email to work [dot] study [at] mcgill [dot] ca. For help finding other work opportunities or designing a CV, visit the Career and Planning Services Office (CaPS). Learn how to maximize summer earnings by consulting our section on Money Management.
- Many students struggle to save money during the summer because they have to pay rent for their Montreal apartment for the summer months. Try finding someone to sublet your apartment. Help is available at the Off-Campus Housing Office.
