STU launches program to support students from international conflict zones

St Thomas University has launched a program that will support students who have come to Canada from international conflict zones. Up to 10 eligible students from conflict zones will have the opportunity to pursue a bachelor of arts program at no cost. Students will gain free tuition, housing, and wrap-around supports for two years. The program is open to students who have come to Canada in the last year, have temporary resident status or permanent resident status as refugees, and who have not yet completed an university degree. “It was felt that we could step up and help [ten students] and do it well,” said STU AVP of enrolment Ryan Sullivan.
