Student support—in all its forms—is one of McGill's top priorities.  In fact, out of all Canadian universities, Maclean's magazine ranks McGill #1 for percentage of total operating expenditures devoted to scholarships and bursaries.

As part of the McGill Commitment, the University will build on this already impressive student aid program by investing millions in additional funding into ensuring all students have access to the opportunities they need to succeed. Read below to find out more. 


Undergraduate Aid

High quality mobility or work experiences that take place outside of the classroom—known as Enriched Educational Opportunities (EEOs)—are an integral part of a well rounded, 21st century education. For undergraduates, they foster self-development and help students successfully transition to the workplace or graduate studies.

As part of the McGill Commitment, the University is striving to expand opportunities for undergraduates to participate in EEOs, and is determined that EEOs be accessible to all undergraduates regardless of their financial capacity. This is why the University has committed to investing an additional 1.8 million dollars in special funding—on top of its regular financial aid program—to pilot a need-based EEO Bursary Program.

Graduate and Postdoctoral Aid

In addition to McGill's regular aid offerings for graduate students, the University has committed to investing a million dollars a year to offset costs of conducting research abroad, and to fund PhD internships.
