Future undergraduates

McGill’s Scholarships and Student Aid Office offers a merit-based Entrance Scholarship Program and a need-based Entrance Bursary Program for all newly accepted, first-year, first-degree undergraduate students.

Every year students benefit significantly from both these programs. Most recently:

  • Our Scholarships Office awarded over $3 million in one-year and renewable entrance scholarships to almost 1000 students with US/International students receiving approximately 40% of these award dollars. Learn more about our entrance scholarships.
  • In our last admission cycle, our Student Aid Office offered entrance bursaries (non-repayable awards) valued at $4.7 million to 700 newly accepted undergraduate students with financial need. Of these entrance bursaries, Quebec/Canadian students received 405 offers averaging $3,890 each, and US/International students received 365 offers averaging $8,545 each. Learn more about our entrance bursaries.
