Durham launches $1.5M student aid program

April 16, 2020

Durham College has established an emergency bursary fund that will offer students more than $1.5M in financial aid. The bursaries will be available to full-time domestic and international students who are experiencing “exceptional expenses” related to maintaining their education. The fund is supported by the Government of Ontario and Durham College Students Inc. “Our students are all facing vastly different scenarios during this extended disruption,” said Durham Vice President, Student Affairs Meri Kim Oliver. “The emergency bursary fund is meant to assist our students with some of their financial stress during this time so they can continue to focus on their academic programs.” Durham (ON)
