McGill launches Canada Award

“Over the last 200 years, McGill has risen to meet whatever challenges it faces. At the core of our success has been the talent we attract – from across Quebec, Canada and the world. This award is designed to do just that. The quality of our people is the reason that McGill is and will remain one of the top universities in the world."

- Deep Saini, President and Vice-Chancellor of ̽.

From far and wide

The Canada Award is for new Canadian (non-Quebec resident) students beginning full-time undergraduate studies in most disciplines in the Fall 2024 or Winter 2025 semester.


Guaranteed funding

Valued at $3000 annually, the award is intended to help offset tuition increases imposed by the Quebec government.


No additional application

The Canada Award will be automatically granted to new Canadian students assessed at the Canadian, non-Quebec tuition rate.
