FSDIE Social aid programs

The FSDIE, a student financial aid program, has a social aid branch that helps university students experiencing short-term financial hardship.

A university social sub-committee meets around every six weeks to consider the various requests it receives.

FSDIE aid applications can be picked up and submitted through the Student Social Department (see below) or Student Life Department (contact details provided opposite).

Please note that applications cannot be submitted by mail. Aid requests will be approved following a one-on-one interview.

Social Department

Social assistants are available to lend an ear, help, provide support, assist you, and direct you to the right providers. Whether you’re experiencing personal, family, social, or financial challenges, the Social Department is here to help. Anything you discuss with CROUS social assistants will be kept confidential.

The social assistants are there to:

  • help students experiencing social, family, or personal challenges
  • restore social ties when an individual is at risk of disconnecting or becoming marginalized
  • help students complete their academic goals
  • help students take advantage of their rights and inform them of the university’s services (health center, AGIR, etc.) and services provided by outside partners—in short, form a bridge between Crous services and the university
  • examine financial aid applications
  • help with the various social-oriented bodies and commissions within our university
