Are you or your student group looking for seed funding to get a project started? SIF can help!
Student projects help build a vibrant student life on campus but often cost more than an individual student can afford. Ryerson University is committed to supporting student initiatives to bring academic, cultural, and recreational projects to life. So, if you are an undergraduate, graduate, or continuing education student with a great idea, please submit a SIF application!
The Student Initiatives Fund (SIF) is in charge of funding thousands of dollars to dozens of student initiatives every year, with its primary focus on seed funding for new projects. Decisions are made by your peers as the committee is comprised of student representatives from each of the six faculties, RSU, CESAR, and the Office of the Vice Provost of Students. Every year, the committee helps individuals and student groups achieve success by funding their amazing student led initiatives.
If you answered yes to these questions, then there’s a good chance SIF can help you get your project off the ground. Take a look at our official policy to see if SIF is right for your idea.
