External Scholarships

An external scholarship is an umbrella term for any source of funding for students (e.g. award, grant, fellowship) that comes from an organization or association outside of McGill. The funding that is offered can be for study and research at McGill or abroad, for international work placements or unpaid internships. 

If your association/organization has a scholarship for students and would like to be listed on this webpage, please consult the External Scholarship Posting Guideline
