Financial Support

While the Department has no financial support programs for undergraduates, McGill University does offer undergraduate Scholarships and Awards.

Faculty scholarships and awards are made by the individual Faculty Scholarships Committees, and students should consult the appropriate section of the Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards Calendar for regulations and information concerning these awards.

Through the generous fundraising efforts of the Steinman family, the Department is fortunate to have SURAs to support undergraduate research.

The SURAs are offered through the Faculty of Science.  As such, the awards are open and available to students supervised by primary faculty members of MIMM.

The # of awards are determined by the income produced on the endowment. Typically 2 awards are offered based on the following guidelines for the Ralph Steinman SURA:

SURAs will be treated as a student award (granted on the basis of merit, not research) in the selection process
Preference will be given to students in MIMM
Students must be B.Sc
The research focus of the project should be sound and doable

Applicants are ranked and reviewed by the department and awardees are then contacted to formally accept the award.  Please note there are stewardship requirements for the recipients of the awards.

Most undergraduate scholarships and awards are granted on the basis of sessional GPA and applications are not required unless specifically indicated in the terms of the award. To be considered automatically for in-course awards and/or the renewal of entrance scholarships, students must complete at least 27 graded credits in a degree program during the regular academic session exclusive of courses completed under the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory option. Summer courses are not considered
