OUA pilot project will allow Queen’s to award up to $2,000 to eligible recipients

Queen’s University announced it will participate in a new financial program supporting Black and Indigenous student-athletes.

The program, the Black or Indigenous Heritage Student-Athlete (BIHS) Bursary(link is external), was recently announced by Ontario University Athletics (OUA) as a two-year pilot project intended to provide financial aid to collegiate student-athletes who identify as Black or Indigenous and need monetary support.

Coming into effect for the 2021-22 school year, participating universities—including Queen’s—will have $50,000 total to give out to individuals who meet the BIHS bursary’s criteria. Up to $2,000 can be given to individual athletes, whose eligibility for other bursaries offered by the university will not be affected by their reception of the BIHS bursary.
