McCall MacBain Scholarships

  • Full Time
  • Canada

The McCall MacBain Scholarships at McGill are Canada’s first comprehensive, leadership-driven scholarships for master’s and professional degree studies. The scholarship program brings together a diverse group of scholars who aspire to lead with purpose – those who have demonstrated leadership potential and an inner drive to make a positive impact in other peoples’ lives.

The scholarships were announced in February 2019 by John and Marcy McCall MacBain, through a landmark gift of $200 million. At the time, it was the single largest gift in Canadian history. Based on their work over the years with some of the top scholarships around the world – such as the Rhodes Scholarships in Oxford, the Mandela Rhodes Scholarships in Cape Town, and the Kupe Scholarships in New Zealand – they felt it was crucial that Canada have a comprehensive master’s-level scholarship that builds on, but is not limited to, academic excellence.

The McCall MacBain Scholarship is a full graduate scholarship that provides students with the mentorship, interdisciplinary learning, and global community they need to accelerate their impact on the world.
McCall MacBain Scholarships at McGill is situated on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations
