McCall MacBain Scholarship

Overview and Introduction

The McCall MacBain Scholarship allows Scholars to pursue a fully funded master’s at McGill University in Montréal, Québec. This program brings together a diverse group of scholars who plan to lead with purpose and have demonstrated both leadership potential and an inner drive to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.

The scholarship covers tuition and fees for the duration of the master’s or professional program, a living stipend of $2,000 per month during academic terms, and a one-time relocation grant for moving to Montréal.
