York University Retirees' Association

Raise money for York University Retirees' Association

The York University Retirees' Association (YURA) raises funds for graduate student scholarships. Each year, scholarships are awarded to three full-time Master's students in any faculty who demonstrate financial need and either a strong commitment to volunteerism in the community or active engagement in a student leadership role. The awards are presented at the YURA Annual General Meeting.

Please support graduate scholarships at York University by registering to walk or run 5 km in the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon on October 17, 2021. One of YURA's major activities is raising funds for graduate scholarships. On the day of the race, our volunteers will walk or run as a group, and then meet for lunch. We will have fun, and at the same time help the student community in an impactful and meaningful way through recruiting sponsors. To learn how to register to walk or run on October 17, 2021 for YURA, please contact Ian Greene at, or 416-571-8742.
