UofT Continuing studies launches fund to support those seeking to upgrade skills

April 30, 2020

The University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies has launched a fund to help those experiencing financial difficulties pursue their education and upgrade their skills. The Opportunity Fund will provide eligible students a one-time bursary of up to $750 towards the cost of a School of Continuing Studies course. “Many of the folks in our learner community are being adversely affected by the COVID-19 situation, whether they’re finding themselves unemployed or less employed than they were,” said UofT Dean of Continuing Studies Maureen MacDonald. “We thought that, by creating this fund, we might be able to support some of our existing learners but also perhaps attract some new learners to the School of Continuing Studies.” UofT (ON)
