Student Emergency Fund
We understand that unexpected emergencies can occur. Students are able to apply for a one-time, non-repayable grant during their university studies (see requirements below, and on the application form). Students will be considered for all available funds such as the Tina Sorensen Memorial Bursary, the Joan and Paula Mallea International Student Emergency Fund, or the Supplementary Undergraduate Student Assistance Trust Fund (SUSA).
- Funding requests for school related expenses such as tuition, books, or bridge financing (waiting for a student loan, lack of financial planning) will not normally be considered.
- Funding for school related expenses will only be considered if the student can demonstrate a clear emergent circumstance outside of their control that has impacted their financial situation.
- The Emergency Fund Application committee has the right to request official proof of paid receipts, invoices, or official documentation (e.g. doctor’s note, pictures) related to the emergency.
J.R.C. Evans Loan
Students can apply for a J.R.C. Evans repayable loan multiple times during their studies. A co-signer is required.
