that only is the clause, but I pray before we finish the msc, they upgrade it to Academic Msc, so we can use it for PhD... That alone need much hard work when we get their.

drhammed, please can I send you pm, I want you to clear my confusion on the reference section of the scholarship form. Though I have sent them an Inquiry mail, but I haven't gotten any response from them for days now.

I mailed the grad cord of my dept, he asked me to forward my undergraduate transcripts and resume which i did,

he later got back to me after few days mandating me to create an account at McGill uApply and to forward my username to him in order to create a special application for me that wont require a submission fee.

that's all sir.

Once you bag the scholarship bro, it will cover everything for your studies at McGill including living expenses. so do not worry about tuition waiver, g/a etc.

seek ye the scholarship first, every other thing shall be added unto it. ��

let your parent write the sponsor letter, and you provide your bank financial statement. Note: you don't have to lie.. Unless you attend a Private University in Nigeria, they will be convinced you need financial support. Even with that, you can't be disqualified. Changing our currency to CAD makes it less.
