The Student Emergency Bursary Fund plays an important role on our campus for students experiencing a crisis. In many cases, the Fund is the difference between dropping out and completing their studies. The Fund has been used in a wide variety of scenarios, including unforeseen vehicle repairs, students escaping domestic violence, and much more.

Learners are at the heart of Red Deer College and we appreciate any support that you can offer to help these students manage their times of crisis.

The Fund has been accessed in a wide variety of circumstances, including unforeseen vehicle repairs, rent, child care, and much more. In many cases this support can be the difference between dropping out and completing their education.

In 2015/2016 a total of $41,000 was distributed to 39 students. Help us support our students in times of crisis! Donate today, and we hope to see you on November 29 for a taco in a bag.
