UBC Okanagan A.W. Hunt, QC Student Emergency Assistance Fund

The A.W. Hunt, QC Student Emergency Assistance Fund has provided much needed financial support to students facing financial insecurity and additional expenses throughout the pandemic. Your gift will support students who are in immediate need of short-term help due to an unforeseen and unexpected event. 

I would like to explain a bit more about the impacts I experienced due to the COVID emergency fund I received in April of 2020. The month of April was definitely one of the most stressful months of this year. The uncertainty around COVID was at its peak, fear for one's health was lurking, and as if the pandemic was not enough we, students, had to also consider our final examinations. COVID also affected the financial situation of my family back home, preventing my parents from providing me with financial support. Even though these events were very demanding, I felt supported to see that UBC was there when I needed it. I was extremely proud of my University of its actions towards minimizing students' stress, and the emergency fund was not only crucial for my groceries and basic costs of living, but also for my mental health as I was able to focus a bit more on my studies and the health of my family back home”. – a grateful student
