Now more than ever, we need to stand together and support one another. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, and we know that many students are struggling with extra financial burdens that are impacting their studies at AU.

To help students in this difficult time, your AU Students’ Union proudly helped sponsor and Emergency Bursary Fund, in partnership with Athabasca Unviersity and AUGSA. 

Criteria for Undergraduate Emergency Bursary:

  • Current AU student in an undergraduate program.
  • Actively registered in at least one AU course.
  • Completed a minimum of 3 AU credits.
  • Experienced an unexpected financial hardship.
  • Demonstration that financial emergency has the potential to affect AU studies.

The fund will provide a $1000 bursary to program students in financial need. 

Applications close June 13.
