York Emergency Student Support Fund

York University is launching a fundraising campaign to establish the York Emergency Student Support Fund, which will provide essential financial support to those impacted by global conflicts and crises.

Flags of the world flying against a blue sky

York is an exceptionally diverse community, with students and scholars from around the world. Consequently, current and prospective members of the university community may be impacted by global conflicts and crises in several ways, including but not limited to involuntary displacement, destruction of homes and loss of work.

With this in mind, York is launching a fundraising campaign to establish the York Emergency Student Support Fund, which will provide essential financial assistance for students affected by conflicts, such as the ones currently happening in Afghanistan, Ukraine and Syria, natural disasters, and other geopolitical events and crises. Specific criteria will be available once the fund is established.

The goal of this fund is to enhance the financial support available to students when they need it most.

With the help of our incredible community, we can respond quickly to the urgent needs of affected students.

Your gift to the York Emergency Student Support Fund will help ensure at-risk and affected students can pursue or continue their education safely and with much-needed financial aid.
