Based in Montreal, Canada, McGill University offers full 30 full scholarships annually to fund master's and "second-entry professional undergraduate" degrees.* Courses are conducted in English, although French is the dominant language in the surrounding city of Montreal. 

*In Canada, professional degrees such as MD and JD degrees are awarded at the undergraduate level. Those who have already received their bachelor's degree in another may apply for an accelerated "second-entry" version of the program, graduating with a professional degree ready for licensure.


The scholarship covers tuition and fees for eligible master's and accelerated professional degrees, as well as a living stipend of $2,000CAD per month.

Finalists who are not awarded a full scholarship may be eligible to receive a Finalist Award of up to $20,000 or a Regional Award of $10,000.  

Scholars also participate in professional development and community events, as well as gain access to a strong alumni network and ongoing opportunities for networking, collaboration, and advancement.
