Mobility Bursary for Exchanges

The University encourages students to study abroad as part of their McGill degree program by defraying part of the cost of eligible study abroad activities. We recognize that the additional costs of going on exchange may be difficult for some students to assume on their own. Thanks to the Quebec government’s Programme de mobilité international et de courts séjours à l’extérieur du Québec (PMICSE), McGill is able to help defray these costs for students who otherwise could not afford to participate.

The Mobility Bursary for Exchanges Program is administered by the Scholarships and Student Aid Office. Fore more information, please visit the Mobility Exchange website.
