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

Territorial Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that we work on the traditional territory of ‎ the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River. We acknowledge that we work on these territories as beneficiaries of settler colonialism. We also acknowledge that members of our UWaterloo community live on Indigenous territories around the world.

This statement is only a small step in the process of reconciliation. Decolonization requires systemic change. The GSA-UW is committed to this effort.
