Scholarship & funding

A limited number of donor-funded, merit-based scholarships are awarded to students each year to recognize academic excellence.
 To be eligible for a scholarship, you must be admitted in a program at the School and be registered in the current session.  The amount and number of scholarships issued varies from year to year, depending on funds received and donor specifications. The scholarships are selected and awarded by the SCS Scholarship Committee on an annual basis. Eligible candidates will be contacted by the School.


Student life

Student societies are independently run for students, by students. They are here to speak out for you and advocate your interests. Every student at McGill is a member of at least one society, so get involved with yours today!
