The McCall MacBain Scholarships
Leading with Purpose
The McCall MacBain Scholarships are about much more than financial support. We believe in the power of community. This program brings together a diverse group of scholars who aspire to lead with purpose – individuals who have demonstrated leadership potential and an inner drive to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.
While you and your fellow scholars will go on to work on a broad range of challenges in different sectors, you share a vision for the kind of leaders you want to be: leaders who serve others with integrity and humility, who are committed to continual learning and bridge-building, and who take bold, meaningful risks.
As a McCall MacBain Scholar, you’ll be able to pursue a fully funded master’s or second-entry professional undergraduate program at McGill University.
The scholarship covers:
- Tuition and fees for the full normal duration of the master’s or professional program
- A living stipend of $2,000 per month during academic terms
- A one-time relocation grant for moving to Montréal
Scholars who are not pursuing an academic term during the summer may apply for up to $5,000 to pursue meaningful summer experiences.
McCall MacBain Scholars are asked to bring an openness and commitment to learning from one another – all while studying in one of the world’s greatest multicultural and multilingual cities.
This program will give you tools to:
- Develop Your Leadership Skills: Scholars explore different approaches to leadership during bi-weekly seminars.
- Connect with Mentors and Advisors: Meaningful connections are at the heart of the scholar's experience.
- Build Community: Learn from peers with a variety of lived experiences and academic paths.
You can apply for the McCall MacBain Scholarship in 2023 if you are planning to apply for Summer / Fall 2024 admission to a full-time master’s or second-entry professional undergraduate program at McGill University. The program must consist of 45 credits or more and take place primarily on McGill’s downtown or Macdonald campuses.
