NEW Health Care Bursary!

AUSU is pleased to announce the launch of our new Health Care Bursary!

This bursary is intended to aid AUSU members in financial need that may have no other reasonable access to personal or group health care benefits. Members may receive up to $1000 (at the discretion of the awards committee) to help pay for enrollment into a health plan.

Members must demonstrate financial need, have completed a minimum of 12 AU credits, and have a GPA of at least 2.00 (C grade) over the most recent 12 AU credits. Members must also include one of the following pieces of information with their application form:
– confirmation of enrollment and proof of payment of a health care plan, or
– quote of enrollment cost from the provider of choice.

Single, couple and family plans are eligible for consideration. Applications accepted anytime.

Apply for the AUSU Health Care Bursary here.

Make note, this bursary has been established with funds remaining from the discontinuance of the AUSU Health Care Plan. This bursary will remain available year-round until all funds allocated to the bursary are depleted.
