MORSL Cohort

Each year, MORSL sponsors a cohort of students to attend the Parliament of the World's Religions. As a participant in the MORSL cohort, students have a chance to debrief with fellow McGill students and reflect on the learning. Upon completing all the requirements, our selected candidates are eligible for reimbursement of the student conference fee, a gift of $100 in grocery store coupons and recognition on the co-curricular record.
