Mc Gill Scholarships

Initiated in honour of McGill’s bicentennial, the McCall MacBain Scholarships are Canada’s first comprehensive, leadership-driven scholarships for master’s and professional degree studies. The program draws on the Foundation’s work with top global scholarships – including the Rhodes Scholarships at the University of Oxford, the Mandela Rhodes Scholarships at South African universities, and the Kupe Scholarships at the University of Auckland – and McGill’s international reach and engagement with respect to institutional partnerships, student and faculty mobility, research and teaching collaborations ,curriculum innovation, and digital connections. Over 30% of our students are international, representing almost 150 different countries .McCall MacBain Scholars are selected for their character, community engagement, leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit, academic strength, and intellectual curiosity.
