Student Funding Opportunities

The UWSA offers opportunities for University of Winnipeg students and UWSA Recognized Student Groups to apply for funding for conferences and events that are beneficial to the Students’ Association, University of Winnipeg students, the university community, or the surrounding community.

Student Funding Opportunities is broken down into two categories:

1. Student Group Funding:

2. Student Conference Funding:
Student conference funding is available for both undergraduate and graduate students. The funding can be used towards the conference, field course or practicum or costs associated with attending the conference, field course, or practicum.

There are four conference funding consideration deadlines per year. The deadlines are:

All applications will be reviewed quarterly in correspondence with the above deadlines. Applications are reviewed by a committee and successful applicants will be granted funds that could cover all or partial costs of the requested Student Conference Funding.
