Scholarships and Financial Aid
General information on scholarships, including McGill Entrance Scholarships, and a detailed listing of all awards are available at www.mcgill.ca/studentaid/scholarships-aid.
Schulich Scholarships valued at CAD$5,000/year (renewable) are available to outstanding prospective students. About 70 Schulich Scholars are present in the School during any academic year. A limited number of Music Entrance Scholarships (valued at $2,000 each) are also awarded to incoming Performance students on the basis of auditions held only in February. All instruments, including voice, are eligible. In addition, outstanding string players applying to the Schulich School of Music are encouraged to audition for the Lloyd Carr-Harris String Scholarships (valued at $10,000 each, renewable). Application for admission must be submitted by January 15.
While taking into account the stipulations of the individual awards, Schulich School of Music scholarships, awards, and prizes are given on the basis of a student's record for the academic session ending in April and are tenable during the next academic year beginning in September. Students must have successfully completed at least 27 credits (excluding courses completed under the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory option) in the academic year preceding the award and must register for full-time studies during the subsequent year, unless fewer credits are needed to complete the program. Students whose records contain outstanding incompletes or deferrals will not be considered. No application is required.
