To be considered for funding, the event or activity must be open or available to all eligible McGill students. There is no limit to the number of student-run organizations or activities that can apply, however funds are limited. The decision to fund student-run activities will be based on activities with the greatest likely benefit to the student community and impact on improving global health.  

Applications should be submitted at least 6 weeks prior to the event. 

Please note: It takes 4-6weeks for a check to be issued. Unless you are applying well in advance of your event do not expect that you will receive the money prior to your event.

  • No retroactive funding requests will be accepted. 
  • A maximum of $1,000 will be consider for each activity.
  • Students must complete the application process each year to renew previously funded activities.
  • Funding will not be provided for travel or other expenses related to an individual student’s international elective, research project or community service program.  Students seeking funding for such purposes should refer to the McGill Travel Awards.

McGill University is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. McGill honours, recognizes and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which peoples of the world now gather. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.
