Black Student Relief Fund

Black Student Relief Fund

The Black Student Relief Fund was established by a generous gift from BAWA (Black at Western Alumni) and friends of Western. 

What is it?
The Black Student Relief Fund gives undergraduate students who self-identify as Black in any year, of any program, funding to provide short-term emergency relief.  These awards cannot cumulatively exceed $750 per student per academic year. Approximately $10,100 will be available. 

Am I Eligible?
Undergraduate students who self-identify as Black and who have current emergency financial need are eligible for consideration. 

How Do I Apply?
To be considered for the Black Student Relief Fund, students need to login to Live Chat at Western https://westernchat.uwo.ca and select Financial Aid Counselling from the dropdown options in order to discuss circumstances via chat. 

You will be triaged by Chat Representatives and if eligible for consideration, a Financial Aid Counsellor will discuss your current financial situation.
