Emergency funding

The Undergraduate Student Emergency Fund and the SGS Graduate Student Emergency Fund assist full-time, undergraduate and graduate students on all campuses who have been impacted financially by devastating, catastrophic or unforeseen circumstances - such as the COVID-19 pandemic. For the purposes of administration of this bursary, undergraduate is inclusive to undergraduate degree students as well as all diploma and certificate students. These funds will be made available to undergraduate and graduate students who contact the student support office on their respective campus directly for assistance. The merits of each request will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Students will be eligible to receive funds only once, unless extraordinary circumstances warrant otherwise.

For undergraduate students seeking financial assistance on the St. John’s campus, please contact the Student Support Unit at studentsupport@mun.ca

• be continuing their studies at Memorial in an upcoming semester or session, but not necessarily Spring/Summer and have not yet completed the requirements to graduate; and
