McGill University Scholarships 2022-2023 are currently accepting online applications for all students. The McGill Scholarships administers an In-Course Financial Aid Program that provides modest amounts of loans and/or bursaries to currently enrolled graduate students in need of supplemental financial assistance. Our office does not have the capacity to replace core funding nor the ability to significantly cover a lot of a graduate student’s costs.
Newly admitted graduate students please note: our Entrance Bursary Program is only available to first-time, first-degree (Bachelor) students. You are encouraged to carefully read your graduate admission offer to understand the value and nature (one-time vs. recurring, etc.) of any financial commitments included. Your financial plan at the time of your acceptance should not assume that additional graduate funding or need-based aid will become available in your first year of studies.
