20th Anniversary for Student Peer Assistance Bursaries

2015 marks 20 years of University of Calgary students helping their fellow students who are in financial need.

Thousands of students have benefited from the Student Peer Assistance Bursary (SPAB) program since it was initiated by the Students’ Union in 1995. In 2014, more than 900 undergraduates received $1.1 million in bursary support through the unique program. The donations and matching funding from the university add up to about $1 million every year. Undergraduate students who complete the financial information section of their online awards application are reviewed automatically for the special bursaries.
