The University of Toronto Mississauga will welcome up to 20 undergraduate students from war torn Ukraine this summer.
Undergraduate students will start arriving this month with courses continuing through the end of August.
This program was launched to give Ukrainian students access to higher education if their studies have been disrupted by the war.
“These students are facing so many challenges, and we don’t want the loss of their education to be another,” UTM’s Vice-Principal, Academic and Dean Rhonda McEwen told UTM News, noting similar assistance was recently extended to students displaced by unrest in Syria and Afghanistan. “The university has several initiatives in place to support out-of-country international students at risk, and we will continue to look for ways to help these students, and those from other countries, stay on track despite the terrible hardships they are enduring at home.”
The students will study at the UTM campus at no academic cost to them as well as be provided with on-campus housing, a stipend, and travel expenses from their current home location to Mississauga and back again.
