Admissions: Entrance Scholarships
McGill offers some entrance scholarships annually to select first-year students based on academic merit. Certain scholarships are renewable annually for students who meet renewability criteria.
Research bursaries celebrate our students' achievements and allow students to establish themselves as innovative researchers. Bursaries are available to enable students to carry out research projects during their medical studies. These are awarded, on a competitive basis, in the Winter term and during summer vacation. Entrance scholarships are also available for students registered in the double programs: M.D.,C.M./M.B.A. and M.D.,C.M./Ph.D.
Global Health and Travel Awards
Generous donors have contributed to the global nature of medical innovation through the creation of numerous awards to facilitate students who wish to pursue research or clinical experience nationally and internationally.
Needs-Based Scholarships, Bursaries, and Loans
These funds are awarded to students in good academic standing who require financial support.
