McGill's Scholarships and Student Aid Office runs a Work Study program that provides on-campus part-time employment to qualified students.
Acceptance to the program is based primarily on financial need.
Some Work Study positions are research positions. (There are also clerical, library, technical, and general positions.)
Some professors do not know about the Work Study program. If you are eligible for Work Study funding, tell professors when you are talking with them. This may make it easier for the professor to hire you.
