In the absence of any eligible non status application in a given year, the award may be given to a refugee student with Convention Refugee or Protected Person status.
To apply for this award, applicants must fill out a Fall/Winter Financial Profile (SFP) online at https://sfs.yorku.ca/aid/sfp. Applicants must also submit a copy of one of the following:
- Notice of Decision letter from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada stating that their pending refugee claim or alternately stating their pending claim for permanent residence status under humanitarian and compassionate grounds.
- Official notice confirming the student's Convention Refugee or Protected Person status. Documentation should be addressed to the attention of Scholarships and Bursaries, and submitted via the Financial Services drop box in the lobby of the Bennett Centre for Student Service.
