Please note: Applicants with a university degree applying for admission to law, medicine, and dentistry who wish to obtain information about scholarships should consult their respective faculties.

Eligibility

The Scholarship and Student Financial Aid Office offers merit scholarships to students entering their first year of university as part of a full-time undergraduate degree program.

The following categories of students are not eligible for these scholarships: transfer student, adult student, exchange student, special status student, part-time student, and visiting student.

Maximum of an admission scholarship

A recipient of a centrally administered admission scholarship can only receive one award. If the recipient receives more than one offer, the highest value grant will be awarded. This does not apply to faculty-specific admission scholarships (shown below).

Due dates

If you file your application after the deadline, you will not be eligible to receive or apply for an admission scholarship, even if you have been granted permission to file a late application. Please familiarize yourself with the due dates.

Fellowships granted for the first time are valid for the stipulated academic year and can only be deferred if the newly admitted student has obtained a postponement of admission.

To do this, you must apply in writing to the admissions department. Please send your request to the Admissions Deferral Coordinator deferral@mcgill.ca

If the postponement of admission is granted, the award of the scholarship is likely to be postponed as well. The final decision to postpone a fellowship rests with the scholarship service. In addition, the postponement is valid for one year, at most. The highest value admission scholarship will be deferred until the following year. No other major scholarship applications will be considered in the second year.
