The Support Fund for Laurentian Students in Certain Discontinued Programs provides one-time financial support to students who were enrolled and majoring in eligible programs in 2021.

We are no longer accepting new applications to the Support Fund.

To be eligible for financial support, you must be transferring to another publicly assisted postsecondary institution in Canada because no alternate, related programs are available at Laurentian University.

Financial support available

If eligible:

  • domestic students can receive up to $4,000
  • international students can receive up to $1,075

This one-time financial support may include:

  • up to $3,000 for relocation costs, if you are moving to a new city (including housing and travel costs to the new location)
  • up to $1,000 for tuition subsidies, to help you cover higher tuition costs at your new postsecondary institution
  • up to $75 for the renewal of your study visa, if you are an international student

The amount of funding you are eligible to receive will vary according to your specific situation.

Review process and payment

We are continuing to review pre-screening applications that were received by the submission deadline. If you have applied, the ministry will notify you on:

  • next steps related to your transfer to a new postsecondary institution
  • whether you qualify for this funding

When to expect payment

If you are eligible to receive this funding, you should receive it from your new postsecondary institution this academic year.
