McCall MacBain Scholarships to study at McGill University
The McCall MacBain Scholarships are about much more than financial support. 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 positively impact 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.
The McCall MacBain Scholarships at McGill are Canada’s first comprehensive, leadership-driven scholarships for master’s and professional degree studies.
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.
