Perseverance: Student Relief Fund

Over the last couple of weeks, our campus community, along with the rest of Canada, has experienced a great deal of change during a time of many unknowns and personal disruption.

Cape Breton University, we’re doing what we always do – adapting and moving forward and continuing with our mission of supporting students’ best interests at CBU.

President David Dingwall is pleased to announce the launch of the Perseverance: Student Relief Fund, an emergency bursary fund established to assist students who are experiencing challenges due to COVID-19.

This fund will ensure that our students are supported through these unprecedented times. CBU students are important members of the Cape Breton community. Whether they are from the Island, or not, all students are Capers, and Capers take care of one another.
