3 General University Information and Regulations : 3.7 Scholarships and Student Aid : 3.7.2 In-Course Awards for McGill Students : Need-Based Entrance Financial Aid
This program offers financial aid to students from families of modest means who require assistance to attend McGill. Upon acceptance to the University, first-year undergraduate students can apply for an entrance bursary on Minerva. The value of the entrance bursary depends on the student's degree of need. Since financial need is the primary factor in the selection of aid recipients, applicants for this program are expected to apply for government student aid programs where eligible.
The University offers an In-Course Financial Aid program to full-time undergraduate degree students on the basis of demonstrated financial need. This aid includes bursaries, short- and long-term loans, and a Work Study Program. To be considered for McGill financial aid, the University recommends that applicants apply for the maximum government student assistance for which they are eligible. The Scholarships and Student Aid Office oversees all provincial, federal, and U.S. student aid programs and disburses government funds.
Student Aid Counsellors are available for consultation on an individual basis to provide advice on budgeting and debt management, and to award financial assistance to needy and deserving students. For more information, see
