Help students navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic

As UVic continues with online learning, we are committed to helping students focus on their studies, well-being, and academic performance, despite the economic challenges that many face as a result of the pandemic.

Access to housing, food, mental health services, child care, transportation, and technology to facilitate online learning are just a few of the areas in which we are seeing great need from our students.

Donations to the UVic COVID-19 Student Support Fund will address the ongoing needs of our students now and in the months ahead. All donations to this fund will be disbursed through the regular channels of the UVic Student Awards and Financial Aid (SAFA) office to directly help students with unmet need as they navigate this challenging time. Thank you for your generous support.

We know that COVID-19 has caused financial hardships for some of our students. UVic awards over 4 million dollars annually in the form of bursaries for students in financial need. We also have funding available for international and Indigenous students.
