McGill Entrance scholarships for future undergraduates

McGill’s Scholarships and Student Aid offers merit-based entrance scholarships to first-time university students entering a full-time undergraduate degree program.

Transfer, Mature, Diploma, Exchange, Special, Part-time and Visiting students are not eligible for entrance scholarships.

There are two types of centrally-administered entrance scholarships:

  • One-year Scholarships valued at $3,000 (non-renewable)
  • Major Scholarships, valued between $3,000 and $12,000 (renewable annually up to 3 or 4 years provided criteria for renewal are met)

Recipients of McGill scholarships must acquaint themselves with all regulations pertaining to both one-year and major entrance scholarships.

Faculty-specific Entrance Scholarships

Certain faculties at McGill offer their faculty-specific entrance scholarships. These faculties include Music, Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences, Law and Medicine. You should consult individual faculty websites and admissions offices for more information. These scholarships are not transferable should you change faculties.

Please note: Dental Medicine and Oral Health Sciences, Law and Medicine applicants already holding a university degree must inquire about awards at their respective faculties. 

Supplemental funding

Suppose you are awarded an entrance scholarship and still require funding for your studies at McGill. In that case, you should consider the entrance scholarship as one part of a potentially larger financial assistance package that may include:

  • Government Aid
  • McGill Work Study Program
  • McGill financial aid (loans & bursaries)

Numerous external awards are also available every year from a host of associations, corporations, organizations, and foundations. New scholarship programs are being established constantly. You are strongly encouraged to apply for all awards for which you may be eligible and to consult the Scholarships and Student Aid website regularly for updated information on new award opportunities.
