McCall MacBain Scholarships at McGill University in Canada, 2025

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. You can be leaders who serve others with integrity and humility, who are committed to continual learning and bridge-building, and who take bod, meaningful risks.

The program will also provide you with tools to develop your leadership skills, connect with mentors and advisors and build community.

Moreover, as a McCall MacBain Scholar, you’ll have the opportunity to pursue a fully funded master’s or second-entry professional undergraduate program at the renowned McGill University.
