Student Donation Fund

The Arts & Humanities Student Donation Fund allows for the support of undergraduate student initiatives that will greatly improve upon their overall experience. The donation allocations are recommended by the Arts & Humanities Students’ Council each Fall and Spring on the basis of requests from individual departments. Over the past several years, a number of student and faculty-driven projects have come to fruition and improved the experience of our undergraduate students. Funds have been allocated towards publications, special guest lectures and events, audio/visual equipment and more. 

Process:
Funds from the Arts and Humanities Student Donation will be distributed by a committee composed of student and faculty representatives. The mandate of this committee is to allocate funds only to projects that directly enhance the University experience of Arts and Humanities undergraduate students. Only Arts and Humanities students may submit proposals for consideration, and these proposals must be launched by students who have not opted out of the Student Donation Fund. For purchases over $2000, the applicant will have to secure at least two (2) quotes.

Completed proposals must be submitted by February 10, 2014. The SDF will not fund requests for individual prizes given to students. Only Arts and Humanities students may submit proposals for consideration.
