Two prestigious awards for one remarkable student
Designed to encourage purposeful leadership, the McCall MacBain Scholarships enable 20 students from across Canada to pursue a fully funded master’s or professional degree at McGill University, while participating in mentorship, coaching and a leadership development program. Jessie plans to pursue a master’s degree in mathematics at McGill.
The scholarships were established in 2019 with a $200 million gift to McGill from McMaster graduate Marcy McCall MacBain BSc ’00 and her husband John McCall MacBain.
Schulich Leader Scholarships are Canada’s most coveted undergraduate STEM scholarships. One hundred scholarships are awarded to entrepreneurial-minded high school graduates enrolling in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math program at 20 partner universities across Canada.
Jessie makes free educational math videos, serves as vice-president, academic of the Mathematics and Statistics Student Society, led high school outreach workshops, volunteered as a homework helper at a community health centre, helped build an inclusive program for incoming first-year math students and worked as a camp counsellor.
