Canadian institutions support students affected by invasion of Ukraine

Numerous institutions across Canada have launched supports for students who are affected by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The University of the Fraser Valley has created the International Emergency Fund, which will provide two years of supports to two or more students who have been impacted by crisis or catastrophe. Queen’s University led a vigil for peace which gave students the opportunity to reflect, support each other, and find solidarity. The Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council have developed the Special Response Fund for Trainees (Ukraine) that will allow active and eligible grant-holders to apply for a one-year relief and assistance supplement. The fund will also enable grant-holders to continue work with research trainees who have not been able to return to Ukraine.
