Scholarships are very competitive at McGill and vary in availability depending on your major/department. Most scholarships only apply to Canadian students leaving International students (who pay 10x as much) with limited scholarship opportunity. Need based bursaries can be applied however.

During my first year, I received a bursary, but unless you have exceedingly good grades, it's hard to apply for scholarships.

No Experience – An a dual Canadian/US citizen, I felt the tuition was more than fair in Canada relative to the schools I was looking at in the States (check out Harvard!).

Financial Options – For one, McGill is a very cheap school, ESPECIALLY for the value. There are three tiers for tuition, ranging from least expensive to most expensive for Quebec residents, Canadian residents, and international students. McGill gives out merit scholarships to students who had very high GPA's in high school, that continues throughout one's studies if they meet a GPA minimum (3.5, last I knew). There is a work study program I believe, and on campus jobs that hire based in part on financial status.

You can get it, sure: If you really do need it that is. They ask for proof for every little thing and it can not only be quite a hassle but also sort of degrading.
1) Never cry or act pitiful. It'll ruin your chances.
2) Be calm and respectful even if something's annoying you or you feel humiliated.
3) Provide them with as much info and data as it is humanly possible.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
