Student Association of George Brown College and GBC are introducing the Spring 2020 COVID-19 Fund. The fund aims to support students affected by the financial consequences of the pandemic.
Students must be currently enrolled in the Spring 2020 semester and who are facing any of the following:
- Job loss for student
- Increased living costs (temporary location change, community supports no longer available, etc.)
- Job loss of family member who offered direct support to the student
- Travel restrictions or increased travel costs
- Increased educational costs such as access to wi-fi, data plan etc.
Students must also be able to provide an explanation of their financial impact and demonstrate their financial need in their application.
Please note that students who received support from the COVID-19 Relief Fund for Winter 2020 are not eligible for the Spring 2020 funding. If you received funding from the Winter 2020 fund, please do not submit an application for funding in Spring 2020.
Applications will be available from Monday, July 13 until Friday July 24 (5:00pm).
The application will be available under the Student Awards tab on STU-VIEW. Please note that there is a limited amount of funds available.
More information, as well as a list of frequently asked questions, can be found on the webpage of George Brown College. Any further questions about the application process can be sent to COVID19Fund@georgebrown.ca.
