3 General University Information and Regulations : 3.7 Scholarships and Student Aid : 3.7.2 In-Course Awards for McGill Students

Faculty scholarships and awards are decided by the faculty scholarships committees. You should consult the appropriate section of the Undergraduate Scholarships and Awards Calendar for regulations and information concerning these awards at, or the following website:
Most undergraduate scholarships and awards are granted on the basis of the combined GPA for the Fall and Winter terms (i.e., your sessional GPA), or a ranking in the top 5% of the faculty, subject to the faculty's budget. Applications are not required unless specifically indicated in the terms of an award.
To be considered for in-course awards and/or the renewal of entrance scholarships, you must complete at least 27 graded credits in the regular academic year. Courses completed under the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) option, and Summer courses, are not considered. Program content and number of credits may also be considered.
Up to a maximum of 6 credits from courses taken at other Quebec universities through the Inter-University Transfer (IUT) agreement can be counted toward the requirements for scholarship renewal or for consideration for other academic awards. Eligibility is based on all courses taken during the regular academic year, on both the McGill GPA and the global GPA, which includes the IUT credits.
A maximum of the top 10% of students in each faculty are named to the Dean's Honour List. This designation is based on the combined GPA for the Fall and Winter terms (i.e., your sessional GPA) and the minimum required combined GPA is determined by each faculty. It is an official University recognition of the student's achievements and appears on the transcript. There is no monetary reward.
All awards, with the exception of prizes, are credited to the tuition fee accounts of students for the following academic year. Students must be registered on a full-time basis to receive the funds.
If you hold a renewable scholarship from the Committee on Enrolment and Student Affairs, it will only be renewed if you meet the McGill standards for renewal. See
