EQUITY & CARE – EMERGENCY FUND (COVID-19)
Your student union, the Student Association (SA) has provided funds to prioritize care to equity groups impacted by COVID-19. This fund recognizes how traditionally marginalized, under-served, and underrepresented communities are disproportionately impacted in times like these and have disproportionate resources in accessing supports.
This fund recognizes how marginalized students often face barriers to other bursaries and applications. Hopefully you find this form easy-to-use. You do not have to prove your worth or your needs. You are worthy. We trust that you know what you need. This process won’t ask you about your personal finances or dig deep into personal experiences.
