Faculty Solidarity Initiative: Student Scholarship Issue

Faculty members in Arts have initiated a statement of support for students who are trying to understand how a change to the administration of University scholarships affects those applying for scholarships this year. The Students’ Union statement on the issue is here. Below is the statement of support that all faculty across campus are invited to sign. If you would like to add your name to the statement, please email facultysolidarity@gmail.com.

We share the concerns of the Students’ Union that undergraduate scholarships for the 2013-14 academic year may not be available. In this uncertain fiscal climate, such awards are essential for many students in continuing their studies. We encourage the administration to ensure that undergraduate scholarships will be offered and to clarify with all haste when and how students will be able to apply for scholarships for the academic year 2013/14.  As Faculty members, we are proud to teach such committed, engaged, and thoughtful undergraduates.
