COVID-19 Student Relief Fund

SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

As Bishop’s University works to protect the health and wellness of its students in these challenging times, our hearts are warmed by the loud voices we are hearing from friends, faculty and staff, and BU alumni across the globe, asking how they can support students affected by the crisis.

The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund was established by Bishop’s University shortly after the Quebec government declared COVID-19 a public health emergency.

It is hard to predict what student needs will be in the weeks and months to come, but we know that they are already facing financial strain. And the need for bursaries to enable them to continue their studies is expected to reach an unprecedented level.

The goal of the COVID-19 Student Relief Fund is to provide financial assistance to students with:

  • Housing and food insecurity;
  • Technology needs for online learning;
  • Income loss due to a business closure or lay-off;
  • Travel expenses related to returning home;
  • Other unexpected financial challenges.

We do understand that many people are themselves experiencing financial difficulties and may not be able to help at this time. But if you are able, please donate now to the COVID-19 Student Relief Fund.

SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

All donations make a difference no matter what the size.  Together, we can help keep students safe and healthy, and ensure they continue to succeed.

Charitable tax receipts will be issued for all donations.

Thank you to all of you who have already given. You are making a real impact at what is a very desperate time for some. You are truly showing our students some #BishopsLove.

BE SAFE.  BE PURPLE.  BU.

If you are interested in discussing different options for giving, please contact Jacquie Scott at 819-822-9600 ext. 2266, or jscott@ubishops.ca.
