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 $2.8 million in one-year and renewable entrance scholarships to more than 900 students with US/International students receiving approximately 30% of these award dollars.
- Our Student Aid Office offered entrance bursaries (non-repayable awards) valued at $5.4 million to 717 newly accepted undergraduate students with financial need. Of these entrance bursaries, Quebec/Canadian students received 402 offers averaging $4,615 each and US/International students received 315 offers averaging $11,175 each.

All students are encouraged to explore other funding opportunities available to them. We also highly recommend our Frugal Scholar Money Management Program that can help you with financial planning and debt management.
Our office does not administer awards to prospective graduate students; however, information on various funding resources is available on our Graduate funding page.
