Student Refugee Program


Student Refugee Program


McMaster and its Students Union have launched joint partnership to help support student refugees, with a focus over the coming year on refugees from Syria.

The initiative builds on the existing student refugee program funded by full-time McMaster undergraduate students, which supports the sponsoring of a student refugee each academic year through the World University Service of Canada (WUSC).

Additional funds raised will be added to the MSU and university contribution, and will be used to support student refugees as they transition to McMaster for living expenses, clothes, and medical expenses.
