The Scholarships & Student Aid Office administers an In-Course Financial Aid Program that provides modest amounts of loans and/or bursaries to currently enrolled graduate students in need of supplemental financial assistance. The office does not have the capacity to replace core funding nor the ability to significantly cover a great deal of a graduate student’s costs.
To be considered for In-Course Financial Aid, applicants must: • be currently enrolled in a full-time degree program at the University • apply for and accept the maximum available government student aid for which they are eligible • be in satisfactory academic standing • demonstrate financial need
To apply for the In-Course Financial Aid Program, go to Minerva: • Select the Financial Aid/Awards tab > Financial Aid Menu > Apply for McGill Financial Aid > Apply for In-Course Financial Aid > Update your financial aid profile > Submit your application. • You will be prompted to make an appointment with a Financial Aid Counsellor. During this meeting, not only will you have an opportunity to discuss your budget, but you will also have your in-course application reviewed in detail. If you are a student with a disability who requires help in completing online applications, please do not hesitate to contact the McGill University. Students may apply for In-course Financial Aid anytime during the academic year, as the need arises. Applications are always for the current academic year (September to August) and are available August of each year.
