Feature Story: UR Loved Bursary supports 2SLGBTQIA+ students facing homelessness
U of R President & Vice-Chancellor Jeff Keshen has recently announced the forthcoming creation of a bursary for 2SLGBTQIA+ students who have experienced homelessness.
The fundraising target for this bursary fund is $25,000, which would allow the award to be given every semester.
The new bursary is President Keshen's commitment to the August 27 "Walk the Walk"fundraiser, a celebrity drag show featuring well-known Regina personalities, in support of Lulu's Lodge.
The bursary will support U of R students who require - or have required - the services of Lulu's Lodge, a 5-bedroom supportive transitional home for 2SLGBTQIA+ youth aged 16-21 facing homelessness in Regina.
