In close collaboration and consultation with McMaster faculty, staff, students, alumni and community, McMaster University’s six Faculties and the Office of the Provost have launched two new funds to support forcibly displaced students, scholars, and researchers.
This includes refugees, those displaced within their country of origin, or those living in conflict-ridden situations and at risk of violence. The establishment of the funds are a humanitarian response to address the growing forcible displacement of students and scholars globally and builds on McMaster’s commitment to global citizenship and increasing access to education for all.

This includes refugees, those displaced within their country of origin, or those living in conflict-ridden situations and at risk of violence.
