One or more bursaries are awarded to domestic or international undergraduate or graduate students experiencing emergency financial need as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This funding is intended to provide for the urgent and emerging needs of students and to support students to enable them to continue their academic programs in the rapidly shifting learning environment.

Applicants are advised to contact Student Awards and Financial Aid via email at finaid@uvic.ca. Please include a brief explanation regarding how you have been financially impacted by COVID-19. You will be sent an application including a budget for the 2019/20 winter session to be completed and returned to our office for review.
