Institutions, groups find new ways to support students, academics from Ukraine

As the war in Ukraine continues, various groups and institutions are finding new ways to support students and academics from Ukraine. The University of Alberta has expedited admission applications for the 2022-23 school year, is simplifying its documentation requirements, is waiving tuition fees for eligible Ukrainian Study Permit holders, and has established an emergency fund for students and scholars. In Kingston, the Mayor’s Fund has been created to help Ukrainian international students at St Lawrence College or Queen’s University who may not be able to return home at the end of the semester and do not have financial support. In Ottawa, the Global Black Coalition is supporting students stranded in Ukraine with funding to cover relocation costs. CTV News reports that the Ukrainian Canadian Students’ Union is calling on institutions to be more accommodating with Ukrainian students who may have run out of money and are not allowed to work enough to cover their tuition costs.
