McCall MacBain Scholarship To study in Canada


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.

  • 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 cities.

Develop Your
Leadership Skills

Scholars explore different approaches to leadership during bi-weekly seminars.

As part of a cohort of scholars from different fields, you’ll participate in a leadership development curriculum to help you better tackle complex challenges and deepen your impact. Together, you’ll develop your understanding of yourself, of others, and of the systems that affect us all.

Connect with
Mentors and Advisors

Meaningful connections are at the heart of the scholar experience.

Every scholar is matched with an experienced mentor, a professional coach, and advisors. During your studies, these individuals will challenge you to reach your goals and help you set new ones. They can also introduce you to a broader network of people who can advise you on specific problems and on next steps after your degree.


Learn from peers with a variety of lived experiences and academic paths.

As scholars, you’ll come together during annual summer retreats, bi-weekly seminars, and other events. The McCall MacBain House, conveniently located at the entrance of McGill’s downtown campus, provides space for scholars to gather, learn, and collaborate.

You can apply for the McCall MacBain Scholarship in 2024 if you are planning to apply for Summer / Fall 2025 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.
