About Golden Key

Golden Key International Honour Society is an international, nonprofit organization with 270 collegiate chapters at major colleges and universities in Canada, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Australia, Malaysia and the United States. Leaders in higher education, business and public service are members of Golden Key and support the Society.

Golden Key continually works toward increasing its scholarships and awards programs; with 17 active programs last year, the Society honored more than 700 members with exclusive scholarships totaling more than US$500,000.

The Office of the Dean of Students serves in an advisory capacity to the student executive and members of the Golden Key Chapter at McGill. As a courtesy to the Chapter, the Office of the Dean of Students receives applications annually and then forwards them to the national Chapter.


Students in the top 15% of their faculty at the end of each academic year (based on CGPA) are eligibile to become members of Golden Key. Each year, in November, invitations are extended to these students, offering them the opportunity to join Golden Key. Members are eligible for scholarships.

McGill University is on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous Peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which we are located.
