Equity & Care – Relief Fund (COVID-19)

Equity & Care Relief Fund



Your student union, the Student Association (SA) established this fund 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 (crisis) and have disproportionate resources and supports.

This fund recognizes how marginalized students often face barriers with other bursaries and applications. We offer this alternative. Hopefully you find this form and process easy-to-use. Low barrier to accessing care. You do not have to prove your worth or your needs. You are worthy. We trust that you know what you need. You know your needs best. This process won’t ask you about your personal finances or dig deep into personal experiences. Share what you will.

This fund is open to George Brown College Students who meet eligibility and are validated by GBC. Support amounts are dependent on number of applications, and measured against criteria outline.
