Schulich Annual Fund
Recognizing the important role donors – alumni, faculty and staff, students, parents, industry partners and friends – play in the success of the School, the Schulich Annual Fund empowers our students to have the best educational journey at one of the world’s best business schools. Each year, our donors provide critical assistance to the Schulich Annual Fund supporting the Schulich Student Support Fund and the School’s Highest Priorities.
Areas of Support
At the heart of every gift is the desire to make a difference in our students’ lives – now and in the future. Funds raised through the Schulich Annual Fund will support the following:
Schulich Student Support Fund
No student should ever have to sacrifice an opportunity for a Schulich education due to financial constraints. Yet, students have been placed in serious financial difficulty as a result of sudden and unexpected situations. Over the years, donors have helped minimize or remove the financial barrier for countless Schulich students by making a contribution towards the Schulich Student Support Fund.
The Schulich Student Support Fund is an initiative that is currently raising funds to support the Schulich Emergency Bursary and the Schulich Alumni Bursary*.
In light of the COVID-19 global pandemic, the current funding priority of the Schulich Student Support Fund addresses support for Schulich graduate** students who are experiencing unforeseen and extremely difficult circumstances that impacted their financial situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Any contributions towards the Fund will help to provide immediate short-term relief for unexpected expenses related to emergency housing, rent, food and other costs due to COVID-19.
The Fund will also continue to raise critical support to undergraduate and graduate Schulich students who demonstrate financial need.
Your support is vital to our student success, and it is in times like these where you can truly change lives.

* The Schulich School of Business Alumni Bursary was established by generous annual contributions of alumni and friends to support undergraduate and graduate students, part-time or full-time, who demonstrate financial need.
**Undergraduate students are eligible to apply to the York University Emergency Bursary.
School’s Highest Priorities
Your gift to Schulich Highest Priorities enables the School to have the flexibility to use the funds especially in urgent situations. Supporting this fund ensures the School can effectively respond to critical needs and prioritize on new and emerging opportunities —including program development, advanced technology, innovative spaces and experiential learning activities — benefitting the student experience.
In addition to the Schulich Student Support Fund, donors champion student success by establishing or contributing to a scholarship, award or bursary. These gifts will provide financial support to deserving students based on academic achievement, community involvement, exemplary leadership or financial need. Our student awards are funded on an annual basis and from professionally managed endowments.
