Student Opportunity Fund

Each year, Western undergraduate students in Health Sciences, Kinesiology and Nursing support the Student Opportunity Fund (SOF) and enhance their student experience through a voluntary $100 student donation fee.

What is the SOF?

An idea developed and implemented by student leaders in the Faculty of Health Sciences, the Student Opportunity Fund provides financial support for student activities and events that supplement the learning experience and are not typically covered by tuition costs. In the past, the SOF has supported things like:

Accessing the SOF

To request SOF funding, students must submit an application via their Association or Faculty of Health Sciences Students’ Council SOF OWL sites located under the "Projects" sub-heading.
