Emergency funds to support students affected by the COVID-19 crisis

In order to support the students affected by the COVID-19 crisis, the UQAT Foundation, the Dépanne-moi Committee, the Aide-Lucien-Cliche Committee as well as the AGEUQAT join forces to create an Emergency Fund. Thanks to this new Fund, students facing financial difficulties will be able to benefit from this financial assistance. This Emergency Fund aims to meet basic needs to allow students to continue their study project.
