APUS COVID-19 Fund

During this difficult time, APUS recognizes that part-time students face additional barriers in accessing funding and resources from governmental and institutional programs. APUS now offers COVID-19 financial aid to part-time international and domestic students at U of T. The APUS COVID-19 fund is intended to provide short-term relief to our members seeking support to cover basic and academic-related needs due to the loss of financial resources. We will be offering a set number of $300 bursaries to eligible part-time students registered during the Winter 2020 and/or Summer 2020 sessions.

APUS COVID-19 Resource List

In an effort to make sure resources are accessible all in one place, APUS has put together a COVID-19 Resource List  which we will be updating regularly. Please contact advocacy@apus.ca with any questions.

APUS Long-Term Laptop Loan Program

Are you a part-time student who needs access to a laptop in order to complete your assignments and exams this semester? APUS has a limited number of laptops to loan to current part-time students who do not have access to a personal computer and require one to complete their Summer semester courses.

Recognizing that many of our members rely on access to computers at U of T Libraries or campus spaces that are now closed, we are introducing the APUS Long-Term Laptop Loan Program to support our members on a case-by-case basis. To apply to this program, please email our Executive Director, Caitlin at ed@apus.ca.
