Preparing Engaged Global Citizens: $140 million

York students exceed expectations in every way. They credit their successes to the support of inspiring faculty mentors, well‐equipped facilities, thought‐provoking learning experiences, a dynamic community and a comprehensive program of financial aid. York is proud to deliver an unrivalled student experience that includes $60 million in annual scholarships and bursaries and hundreds of international academic and student exchange opportunities in cities like Beijing, Helsinki, Paris and Mumbai; each year, hundreds of York students spend a term or more learning abroad. Campaign gifts will help ensure every qualified student – including the many who are the first in their families to attend university — benefits from the experiences and support they need to become the global leaders of tomorrow.

Your investment will:

  • Provide financial aid to support students who could not otherwise attend York
  • Allow students to reduce the need for part‐time work to devote more time to their studies
  • Create transformative learning experiences for students, such as study abroad opportunities
  • Fund leadership experiences for students
