University of Ottawa creates new fund to assist refugees

 The University of Ottawa is responding to the Syrian refugee crisis with new scholarships and support for two innovative programs to help refugees.

“Like all Canadians, members of the University of Ottawa community have been deeply moved by the plight of refugees fleeing war in Syria and other countries,” said President and Vice-Chancellor Allan Rock. “We feel an obligation to act in practical ways that will make a difference.”

The aim is to create a $400,000 fund for the initiative. The University of Ottawa will contribute $200,000 and will seek a matching amount from donors.
