Faculty of Law Research Travel Grants for BCL/LLB Students

The development of research skills is a key element of the BCL/LLB program. To encourage and support research at the BCL/LLB level, the Faculty of Law is offering financial assistance to students wishing to present research at a conference in Canada or elsewhere. Selected students will receive a scholarship of up to $1,000 to help pay for travel and accommodation.

These grants are made possible through the generosity of donors who have created the following funds:

  • Teresa and Tony Fata Fund for Innovation in Teaching and Learning
  • Dobson Fund

Eligibility Criteria

The awards will be allocated on a rolling basis to BCL/LLB students in the Faculty of Law presenting a paper at a conference.

  • Applicants must have been accepted to present a paper at a conference. In some cases, poster board presentations will be considered as well.
  • All applicants must complete the File Student Travel Grant Application Form.
  • Within 30 days of presenting at the conference, the successful applicant must provide a 300-word report outlining how the award facilitated participation at the event and the impact this had on the applicant's university experience.

For any question regarding these grants, please contact research.law [at] mcgill.ca.
