Scholarships enable students to pursue a fully funded master’s or professional degree while participating in mentorship, coaching, and a leadership development program 

The McCall MacBain Scholarships at McGill today announced its fourth cohort of recipients: 30 students who will pursue a funded master’s or professional degree combined with mentorship and leadership programming, as well as 117 who earned entrance awards ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 each. 

The 30 scholars will enter 20 departments and schools across nine faculties at McGill – including six from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences. The Schulich School of Music, three departments – Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Sciences and Languages, Literatures, and Cultures – and three schools – Computer Science, Human Nutrition, Social Work – will welcome scholars for the first time. 

“These students inspire us with their compassion and drive,” said Dr. Marcy McCall MacBain, Chair of the McCall MacBain Scholarships at McGill. “Our shared mission is to provide them with an unparalleled graduate education, leadership development opportunities, mentors and lifelong connections. We hope to accelerate their ability to make an impact in communities across Quebec, Canada, and around the world.”
