Entrance Awards for McGill Students

Entrance Awards for McGill Students

Undergraduate Entrance Scholarships are available to students entering McGill University for the first time in a full-time undergraduate degree program.

You should consult www.mcgill.ca/studentaid/scholarships/prospective for details. Highlights include:

  • Entrance Scholarships are entirely merit-based; financial need is not considered.
  • Value ranges from $3,000 to $10,000.
  • There are two types: the One-Year, where eligibility is based solely on academic achievement; and the renewable Major, based on academic achievement as well as leadership qualities in school and/or community activities.

Application Procedures

Application Procedures

  • One-Year Scholarships: by applying to McGill, all eligible applicants are automatically considered. No separate application is required.
  • Major (renewable) Scholarships: candidates can apply on the web after their application for admission has been submitted and they have received an email acknowledgment.
  • You must ensure that you send in all required supporting documentation.
  • Dentistry, Law, Medicine, and Music applicants should inquire at their own faculty's admissions office regarding availability of entrance awards.
  • If you hold a renewable scholarship from the Committee on Enrolment and Student Affairs, the scholarship is renewed only if you meet the McGill standards for renewal. See www.mcgill.ca/studentaid/scholarships/prospective/regulation.

Need-Based Entrance Financial Aid

Need-Based Entrance Financial Aid

This program offers financial aid to students from families of modest means who require assistance to attend McGill. Upon acceptance to the University, first-year, undergraduate degree students can apply for an entrance bursary on Minerva. The value of the entrance bursary depends on the student's degree of need. Since financial need is the primary factor in the selection of aid recipients, applicants for this program are expected to apply for government student aid programs where eligible. For more information, see www.mcgill.ca/studentaid.
