Need-based financial aid:
Entrance Bursary Program
To accommodate changing circumstances due to the COVID-19 situation, the application deadline for the Entrance Bursary Program has been extended. New students coming from CEGEP and High School with financial concerns are encouraged to apply within 60 days of your official admission offer, but applications will be accepted for consideration up to and including June 30, 2020.
In-Course Financial Aid
Students may apply to McGill’s Bursary and Loan program any day of the academic year, as financial need arises. Once you complete the In-Course Financial Aid application in Minerva, you are prompted to make an appointment with a Financial Aid Counselor. They will take time to understand your situation and help you leverage available resources. Core funding such as government aid and parental support is not replaced but supplemented.
Government Student Financial Assistance
Take advantage of expertise across all provincial/federal and U.S. government aid programs. In addition to CERB/CESB income replacement programs, the Canadian government has made one-time changes to the Canada Student Loan Program for 2020-2021 in light of COVID-19.
We have special funding opportunities for Indigenous students, students with disabilities, students in or from foster care, and for activities such as exchanges, field courses and unpaid off-campus research and internships.
The Work Study Program
Provides job opportunities for students with demonstrated financial need.
During the period in which McGill has committed to offering remote instruction (Summer and Fall 2020), the Scholarships and Student Aid Office is pleased to offer virtual services and support while our physical office is closed.
