Huntington Helps Emergency Bursary Fund Established for Post-Secondary Students Impacted by COVID-19 Pandemic

SUDBURY, ON – Huntington University is establishing the Huntington Helps Emergency Bursary Fund – a $25,000 COVID-19 response initiative to assist post-secondary students in need, across the Greater Sudbury community.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted daily life for many people, including our own community and local post-secondary institutions. This is a time for all communities to come together, and offer help where and when it is needed most,” said Dr. Kevin McCormick, President and Vice-Chancellor of Huntington University. “Huntington University’s core values of civic leadership, as well as community service beyond the walls of the university, call upon us as an institution of higher learning to reach out to all university and community college students in our community during this critical time in our country.”

“I am proud to serve at an institution such as Huntington University. Our dedicated Huntington team knows the importance of helping others during difficult times, and recognizes that all of our local post-secondary students are feeling extremely anxious due to the upheaval and uncertainty of recent weeks,” said Mary-Liz Warwick, Huntington University Board Chair. “As a community, we must work collaboratively to navigate through these unprecedented times.  Huntington University is inviting ALL post-secondary students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, who are living and/or studying at post-secondary institutions in Greater Sudbury, regardless of program or year of study, to apply to the Huntington Helps Emergency Bursary Fund.”

Visit for more information about the Huntington Helps Emergency Bursary Fund, and how to apply. Applications are open to university and community college students enrolled at post-secondary institutions in Greater Sudbury.  Please also follow @PresMcCormick and @Huntingtonuni on Twitter for regular updates.   

Applications to the Huntington Helps Emergency Bursary Fund will be accepted on an ongoing basis, until the fund has been exhausted. 

“It has been amazing to witness people in our community coming together to help one another, and we are thankful that Huntington University has the resources to assist local students in need,” said McCormick. “I encourage all those who are able, to check in on family, friends and neighbors, and/or consider how a small donation of any kind can help our wider community and its most vulnerable citizens through the coming weeks. Our website will also include a list of community agencies that require support. Our individual acts of kindness, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, can make all the difference to a person in need.”
