Students gather for chapel

Donors directly impact student experience.

Donations to the Grebel Fund are critical for our mission. Each year, your gifts help to fund portions of our programs that are not covered by tuition fees and grants. These extras make Grebel a special place to so many people. Last year, Grebel distributed more than $500,000 in awards and bursaries directly to students.

Strong leaders create a thriving community at Grebel.

Tom Iagovet

“Being part of the Grebel community helped shape my perspectives as a student, but also as an individual,” said Tom Iagovet, who has received several awards and scholarships for his outstanding contribution to the community.

“Receiving scholarship awards has been the key factor that allowed me to remain so close to the Grebel community since I started university,” said Tom. “Being recognized for engagement in Grebel’s community and for academic achievement means a lot to me on a personal level. It motivates me to keep up my diligence and hard work in my classes, and to do more for the people around me."


I have benefited greatly from my connections at Grebel. Through these relationships I have formed, I have learned how to be more empathetic, open to new ways of thinking, and accepting of not only other people, but of myself too. These connections motivate and inspire me to work in a field where I can help people from all over the world and assist them in forming their own connections. Lastly, at Grebel I have discovered the true importance of listening. It is amazing what you can learn about someone and the history of their life when you truly listen to others.

Through living at Grebel and especially in my role on the Chapel Committee, I have grown in my faith, grown as a person, and I have made some true and deep connections with the other students here. Grebel is such a community-oriented place that inspires and encourages each of us to build deep connections with each other. You get to see different sides of people when you live together. Chapel has helped me gain the confidence to be vulnerable and not be afraid of my story and my beliefs.



In a bold move, Colin chose to leave his hometown of Saskatoon in order to study Planning at UWaterloo and live at Grebel. This residence feels more like home than I could have imagined, he explained. Grebel is such a welcoming and diverse place. I cant overstate how important this community is to my mental health and happiness. Colin also joined the Music Living-Learning Community at Grebel as a way to meet people with a similar love for music. Its been wonderful talk about our classes, recitals, events, and to get to know the Music faculty. As an out of province student, Colin received a scholarship to help offset extra expenses. This award is a significant part to why I can go to school in Ontario.
