Right now, 36.6 per cent of all Queen’s students receive financial aid. More often than not, that financial aid leaves important expenses uncovered. As a result, students from lower-income families must either take on jobs or loans to cover the difference, or forego a Queen’s education in favour of an option closer to home.
Students today believe in a promising future. They see the change that needs to happen and they challenge themselves to be that change. They come to Queen’s to prepare themselves for that challenge but there are real barriers that stand between them and the future they deserve.
