In case you’re not subscribed to emails from your college, here’s an important one pertaining to all of us undergrads:
Dear York Students,
YFS Relief Fund:
The York Federation of Students (YFS) has created a special Relief Fund for undergraduate students facing financial hardship due to the ongoing strike. Thus, the YFS has allocated $40 000 into the Fund, and undergraduates facing financial distress due to the strike will be eligible for up to $100 in relief. All applicants will be required to present documentation relating to their financial hardship (ex. Receipt for cancelled plane ticket) along with an application form which is available on the YFS website at http://www.yfs.ca/index.php?section_id=227. Applications will be adjudicated by the YFS Clubs Committee. The deadline for the application is as follows : January 30 at 5pm.
Those of you who really need the extra $100 better apply ASAP, because simple math dictates that only 400 lucky students will get the financial relief (assuming everyone receives the maximum amount, which itself is not much).
