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 UWSA, University of Winnipeg students, the university community, or the surrounding community.

Student Funding Opportunities is broken down into two categories:

1. Student Group Funding:
The UWSA values student group events as a part of its service to the membership, and university life. UWSA recognizes student groups in two categories: 1) Recognized Groups 2) Affiliated Groups.

Only Recognized Groups are eligible to apply for UWSA Student Funding Opportunities. Recognized Groups may apply for funding for the following:
• Events
• Supplies
• Start up costs

Student Group funding is considered  by committee each month. For student group funding: APPLY HERE

For questions please contact our Vice-President External Affairs at vpea@theuwsa.ca or 204-786-9781.

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:

August 15
October 31
January 30
March 27

The Student Life Committee will review all applications quarterly soon after the above deadlines. You will be notified within the weeks following the deadline, after the committee has considered all applications, whether your application was approved for funding. Successful applicants will be granted funds that could cover all or partial costs of the requested funding. Students enrolled in joint programs are not eligible for UWSA conference funding if they are not a UWSA member (i.e. if you do not pay fees to the UWSA).

Please note that any applications that are received before your travel date, but are not reviewed until after, will still be considered for funding; We do provide retroactive funding.
