Montreal Chinese Academic Association (MCAA) is now promoting an innovative 4-week summer visiting student program. Students are pre-selected from top Chinese universities, and thus are highly qualified for China Scholarship Council (CSC) scholarships granted in science, engineering and medicine. Our summer program will help students to develop interests in particular research field through various academic activities and provides students excellent opportunities to demonstrate their research potential in a world-class research setting. This program aims to initiate a new avenue for McGill professors to meet up and directly assesspotential PhD applicants from China.
