Emergency Assistance Funds

Sometimes emergencies happen that are outside a student’s control or the best advance planning. NIC may be able to provide financial support in the form of bursaries to students dealing with emergencies, particularly those that would prevent students from completing their studies.

Funding support may be available to help with books, transportation, childcare, supplies, groceries or other essentials.

NIC also has funding available to help students access technology to support successful digital learning.  Bursary funds can be used for costs related to computer software, hardware (computer, printer etc.) and/or internet access. 

Needs-based, emergency funding is available to both domestic and international students.

With thanks to NIC’s Board of Governors and the province of British Columbia for their financial support.
