Métis Student Joins McCall MacBain Scholars’ Inaugural Cohort

The McCall MacBain program is the first comprehensive leadership-based scholarship for master’s and professional studies in Canada, created by John McCall MacBain and his wife, Dr. Marcy McCall MacBain, through a historic $200-million gift to McGill University in 2019.

In the upcoming Fall semester, 20 scholars will begin their fully funded master’s or professional degree in five faculties at McGill, while connecting with mentors and participating in an intensive leadership development program.

One of the twenty students, Josh Swain, is finishing his studies at the University of Winnipeg, where he has engaged with his Métis heritage by helping run a campus group that supports Indigenous students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. He has also helped teach biology and financial literacy to Indigenous students.
