Haiti: Emergency bursaries now available 

Concordia has announced $45 000 worth of funding for Quebec residents who were born in Haiti.

These emergency need-based bursaries worth $1 000 each are available through the Financial Aid and Awards office to full-time students. Separate emergency funds are available to international students.

“We were able to make these funds available for this purpose because they were donated to the university as unrestricted funds,” says VP Advancement and Alumni Relations Kathy Assayag. “This allowed us to designate them an area of primary importance, helping our Concordia students of Haitian descent during a very difficult time.”

Eligible students are encouraged to sit down for a confidential meeting with a Financial Aid Officer in S-LB 085 to determine if they qualify. The office is open Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (except Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Wait times are usually under 10 minutes. For more information, visit their site or call ext. 3507.
