McGill Rentention and Recruitment Program 2018-19

The objective of the McGill Health and Social Services Community Leadership Bursary Program is to address the need for professionals with English and French language skills in health and social services in selected Québec régions. MCDC, in partnership with McGill University, will be once again offering bursaries to students in the Chaudière Appalaches who are studying in Health and Social Service Programs. This Bursary Program is part of the Retention Program

The Bursary Program is divided into two categories:  Category 1 & Category 2

Category 1 is for eligible students who are studying at an institution located outside their home region. Bursary amounts are awarded based on students' level of study with up to $10,000 at the university level and $5,000 for cegep/college students.

Category 2 is for eligible students who are studying at an institution located within their home region. Up to $5,000 is awarded to university level students and $2,500 for cegep/college students.

Students who are awarded bursaries must commit to returning to a Quebec region following the successful completion of their studies to work for a minimum of one year in a public health and social services institution or related organisation.
