We feel a responsibility to show support for our members through these difficult times, specifically non-regular faculty who are facing increased uncertainty and stress. We have created a mutual aid fund by drawing from our Faculty Association savings to distribute up to $50,000 to faculty with the following parameters:
- non-regular faculty who have taught at least one course in two of the past three academic years (2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-2020).
- non-regular faculty who are experiencing financial stress.
- Maximum of $400 per disbursement.
To apply, simply fill out this editable PDF form, save with your surname added to the file name and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: If a digital signature is not possible, your typed name will do. If you have trouble opening or editing the form, please send a note to email@example.com. We have tested the form with Acrobat and Preview.
The applications will be reviewed on August 1, 2020. After this point, applications will be reviewed on an ongoing regular basis until the funds run out.
Disbursements will be reviewed by a small committee composed of the Faculty Association executive. All disbursements are confidential, and applicants’ privacy will be protected.
