Increased Financial Supports for Graduate Students in Winter 2021

December 3, 2020

The Graduate Student Association-University of Waterloo (GSA-UW) has been working with on-campus partners to increase financial supports for graduate students during the ongoing pandemic.

In the Spring 2020 term, the GSA-UW partnered with Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs (GSPA) and the Graduate Studies Endowment Fund (GSEF) to provide over $100,000 in additional financial opportunities for graduate students.

The GSA-UW, GSPA, and GSEF have collaborated once again to provide graduate students with an additional $60,000 in funding.

The GSA-UW is contributing $30,000—and GSPA and GSEF are both providing $15,000—to increase available funds within the academic readiness bursary, contingency fund, and thesis completion awards.

The GSA-UW understands that the ongoing pandemic has created academic, financial, professional, and social issues for graduate students. We intend to continue to work with our on-campus partners to help our membership through this difficult time.  

If you have any questions on this trilateral initiative or would like more information on the GSA-UW and our services, please do not hesitate to contact us at gsaoffice@uwaterloo.ca.
