Thank Yous

"When I received this award, it meant that my educational journey could get started and stay in motion…As a single mother and full time student, receiving this award means I can also continue to strive for towards educational success without having to worry about the expenses and missing out on other educational gains…This support goes beyond what I could have imagined and everyday I am thankful for so many positive opportunities I am able to contribute to.

"I would like to thank the donors of this award for allowing some financial strain to be taken off my shoulders. It will allow me to focus more on my schooling and increase the positive outlook on my education. Thirdly, receiving this award has also allowed myself to be prepared for any other expenses that attending university may create. This award will also be used to continue my education in the future and save up for more educational opportunities. Once again, thank you!"

– Shay-Lynn S. (Undeclared)

"I appreciate this bursary immensely, as it not only provides financial aid, but also invaluable encouragement.  This award has given me increased confidence to finish the remaining courses in my degree to the very best of my abilities.  Furthermore, it feels incredible to be recognized by such an important organization, that is involved in creating meaningful and lasting change. Additionally, the financial aid received will help me pay for tuition. During these difficult times, this bursary will help to support me through the winter term by not only paying for courses, but also by reducing stress, and improving morale. As we progress through the year ahead, I am grateful for this award and the inspiration I have gained from it. Once again, thank you very much."

– Mitchell H. (Arts)

"I am a student and father of 3 beautiful children, one of which is only 4 months old.  My family is low income and with my partner on maternity leave we are financially very strained.  This award will help in off-setting some of the expenses of going to school which helps in alleviating our financial stresses, allowing me to better focus on my education.

"Thank you for selecting me as a recipient of this award.  This money is very much welcomed as it helps in reducing the financial strain associated with being a full-time student with children.  This was a blessing and I am truly thankful."

– William H. (Arts & Education)

"This award allows me to continue on to finish my final year at this university! With COVID-19 affecting my ability to work over the summer it was difficult to come up with the money for tuition. This bursary has allowed me to complete my U of W degree with no student loans and I am so grateful for this. 

"Thank you so much for donating this money to the university. It has helped me so much with my educational goals. At the start of the school year I was very worried about what I would do if I didn't have enough money for my winter term at the U of W and this bursary put me in a position to complete my degree and enter the workforce. I have funded my degree with my own money as my family didn't have anything extra to give me towards it. Getting these bursaries makes me feel like I have a family member out there somewhere that’s helping me succeed with my post-secondary education. So once again thank you so much!"

– Hayley H. (Science)
