Student Relief Fund
There is an emergency fund available to all University of Windsor students.
The criteria to consider requests are as follow:
Bursaries are intended to cover a temporary loss of resources and are not intended to supplement a student’s income or to pay for items which should have otherwise been budgeted for. When giving consideration to requests, the Committee will consider the availability of various government support programs (e.g., CERB) and policies (e.g., no evictions, no hydro shut offs). Students must be registered full-time in the term that this application is being submitted (exceptions will be considered).
Bursary Maximum: Up to $1,000.00 Intended to cover emergency situations that could not be planned for.
The following documentation must be uploaded with your on-line application:
- Any official documentation that confirms the difficult financial situation that you are currently experiencing (e.g., layoff notice, Record of Employment)
- A copy or screenshot of your bank statement(s) or a letter from your bank confirming your current bank balance (must have your name indicated on the documentation but if possible please block out your account number).
- If you are a graduate student and your tuition and fees have been deferred with your Graduate Assistantships, a copy of your Payroll Deferment Form submitted to the Cashiers office is required.
