The Scholarships and Student Aid Office administers both McGill’s financial aid program and all government student aid programs. McGill’s need-based financial aid program includes short term loans, limited bursary assistance, and a Work Study program. In addition, the Scholarships and Student Aid Office offers advice on debt management and budget counselling.
Financial aid eligibility
All applicants for McGill financial aid must first apply for the maximum government assistance for which they are eligible:
- Citizens, and permanent residents, of Canada are eligible for federal and provincial government loans.
- Citizens, and permanent residents, of the United States are eligible for US government loans.
- International students are eligible for McGill financial aid, but not for provincial government aid (unless they become permanent residents).
For more information on student aid, please contact the Scholarships and Student Aid Office.
Work Study Program
The Scholarships and Student Aid Office runs a Work Study Program that provides students with financial assistance through part time employment on campus. Students may apply if they are registered full time in a degree program, are in satisfactory academic standing and demonstrate financial need.
There are also employment opportunities through Tutorial Service.
