AUArts Boost-A-Student Fund

Helping boost students who need it most.

To our 1,200 students, their future is art, craft and design, and some are in desperate need of a boost of support. When the pandemic lockdown happened, AUArts provided emergency relief bursaries. The need far exceeded the funds available to provide basic needs — rent, food, and transportation home.
With the continued uncertainty of the pandemic we need to ensure our students’ ongoing welfare and success. Help us establish the Alberta University of the Arts Boost-A-Student Fund with the goal of raising $100,000 so we can respond quickly to urgent student needs. 
Your donations help students with:
  • Work-integrated learning research scholarships
  • Course materials and art supplies
  • Technology and remote learning equipment
  • Tuition and fee assistance
To show our commitment, the Board of Directors, President’s Cabinet, and the University have collectively established a matching fund. Your donations will be MATCHED dollar for dollar up to $50,000. For example, your $500 donation would be worth $1,000!

The creative economy is more important than ever. Please donate now and help boost the lives of our student artists, craftspeople and designers in our community. Find us and share on social media with the hashtag: #boostastudent.
