You should not be concerned if your initial e-bill does not reflect your award.
When you receive a notification at your Mc Gill email that your e-bill is ready, you should deduct the appropriate amount (if not already considered) and pay the balance.
The University’s Entrance Bursary Program offers entrance bursaries to students from low to modest income families who demonstrate financial need.
Those eligible to apply include all: The goal of the program is to make the University more accessible to those who face financial challenges by supplementing other funding resources such as government aid, Indigenous Band Support Funding, part-time work, parental support, and other sources of funding. Any student receiving this form of aid will be automatically approved to seek employment through the University’s Work Study Program upon application via Minerva.
All application materials should be submitted in English.
Key dates for applications to the CAA Bursary Scheme are outlined below: March 2019 Applicants will be notified of the amount they have been awarded by email.
For information on e-billing, please consult the Student Accounts website.
Students who have requested and been granted an admission deferral and attend in the winter semester of the application year may have one half of their entrance bursary offer deferred for the winter semester.
Students who have requested and been granted an admission deferral and attend the following fall semester (one year later) must re-apply as the amount available for entrance bursaries varies each year.
The CAA Bursary Scheme is intended to provide financial assistance to students, early career researchers and low income professionals or those from less affluent regions.
