Application Information

Schulich Student Activities Fund


Can I apply?

You can apply for funding if you:

  • are a registered undergraduate or graduate engineering student in good standing at the time of your activity.
  • are enrolled full-time in the fall or winter term of the current academic year and continuing your studies with us after your activity.

Funding applications will only be accepted by Schulich students – not faculty, staff, or off-campus organizations.

Students aren't eligible for funding after their final semester ends. Some exceptions may be made for students who are part of design teams participating in competitions the summer after graduation.

Application advice

Read the policy carefully:

Ensure you have all required information. Incomplete applications may be rejected.

Write in word first:
