Share this story

Many students have lost part-time jobs in various sectors, including service and hospitality, due to COVID-19. To help alleviate this stress, OCAD University has launched a fundraising campaign that will provide emergency bursaries to students in need.

By creating the COVID-19 Emergency Bursary Fund, OCAD aims to raise $250,000 to help students pay for their basic needs, such as, rent, food and medical costs.
