Emergency Bursary

The GSA accepts Emergency Bursary applications year-round.
Please note: To have your Emergency Bursary application reviewed before the UCalgary holiday break, please submit by 4:00 pm MT on Monday, December 17. Applications received after December 17 will be reviewed early January 2019.
The Emergency Bursary is provided to assist graduate students in meeting an emergency/temporary need by bridging a financial gap that would otherwise impede the students’ ability to complete their studies. These funds are provided by the University of Calgary through a Memorandum of Understanding with the GSA, and are processed and managed jointly by the GSA, Faculty of Graduate Studies and Human Resources.
