The Vanier College Foundation works to increase the financial resources available to the College so that it may continue to offer quality education to its students in a stimulating and enriching environment. The resources, made available through the College, are designated as:Financial Aid
- Textbook Loan Program: at the beginning of each semester, students in need submit an application to participate in the Textbook Loan Program. In this program, students are loaned brand new textbooks free of charge for the duration of the semester (or as long as the book is required course reading). The textbooks are returned at the end of the semester and sold back to the Vanier Bookstore with the proceeds being reinvested in the Textbook Loan Program.
- Emergency Loans: the Foundation provides emergency loans to students who are experiencing immediate financial difficulties. Emergency Loans may include such items as rent, extraordinary utility bills, utilizes, or a significant and unanticipated household expense.
- Food Vouchers: students who are unable to afford weekly groceries can participate in the Food Voucher program which provides coupons that can be exchanged for groceries at Loblaws supermarkets.
NEW – V.I.E. FUND: Vanier Initiatives for the Environment
The VIE fund was created to foster environmental awareness, promote civic responsibility, support students participating in experiential sustainability activities, and to advance green projects that improve campus life.
This fund would support projects such as bursaries and scholarships for students, innovative group-based or individual environmental initiatives, and Vanier garden projects.
The Vanier College Advisory Committee on the environment (VCACE) is set-up to oversee all applications and proposals as well as ensure that projects meet the objectives outlined in the Vanier College Sustainability Action Plan, the Vanier College Sustainability Policy, and the Vanier College Strategic Plan (2015-2020).
