Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) students facing financial hardship are now eligible for funds thanks to generous donations.

The Kwantlen Student Association (KSA) and KPU have each donated $100,000. The funds are available to any student registered for the Spring 2020 term. Students are eligible for up to $250 each.

"The KSA always strives to represent its students, and we hope that with this donation, we can give students financial assistance to reduce financial hardships they might face due to COVID-19,” says KSA president David Piraquive.

“During these unprecedented times, many people will face financial hardships and this includes KPU students. We are deeply grateful to the KSA for this generous gift, and we are proud to partner with them in this effort by matching their donation. Our collective efforts will help our students financially as they try to navigate the current situation,” says Dr. Alan Davis, president and vice-chancellor of KPU.

Students who require more emergency funding may be eligible for other grants of up to $1,500. For more information about student financial aid or to apply, visit
