Dawson College Emergency Financial Aid Bursary (DCEFAB)

The Dawson College Emergency Financial Aid Bursary (DCEFAB) aims to provide financial aid to full-time students, including international students, who need short-term financial support.

The collaborative efforts of Student Services, Dawson Student Union, and Dawson Foundation has made this $500 bursary possible, to help students in the greatest need. With the support from the Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MEES), additional funding may be made available to qualified applicants. 

This bursary is not intended to cover expenses related to existing debt obligations or non-essential expenses.

Celebrating Dawson’s extraordinary students

Dawson College was founded 50 years ago on its commitment to the well-being of and respect for all students, a tradition and legacy that continues. We recognize no two students are alike: our student population transcends language, ethnic origin, culture, roots, intellectual capacity and economic standing.

In recognition of this diversity, we acknowledge students who excel and persevere despite facing obstacles. We recognize students who defy the challenges before them by rising above their own circumstances to engage in the intellectual life of the College. Dawson proudly supports students in every circumstance by providing the tools they need to succeed, and recognition when they do.

Dawson students benefit from an array of financial aid and learning centres for students who require additional help, and awards and scholarships that recognize excellence and scholarly perseverance. The need for such support to offset real-life expenses beyond tuition is always great.

Thanks to its donors, the Foundation supports student success through the distribution of Awards and Scholarships to over 120 Dawson students every year.
