Entrance scholarships
McGill offers some Entrance Scholarships annually to first-year students based on academic merit.

Entrance scholarships are available for students accepted to the Med-P program. In the first year of the Med-P program, students are registered in the Faculty of Science and hence are eligible for University entrance scholarships. Once the student is promoted to the Faculty of Medicine these scholarships are renewable annually for three academic periods if the student meets the renewability criteria.
