Student Project Grants


Do you need financial support to get your project up and running? The Faculty of Arts Student Project Grants provide financial support for student-initiated extra-curricular projects and activities that promote experiential learning and student engagement. Competitions are held twice a year, in the Fall and Winter terms. 

Eligibility: You are eligible to apply if you meet all of the following conditions:

  • Registered in an undergraduate degree program in the Faculty of Arts;
  • Clear academic standing; and
  • Registered in at least 3 courses during the semester during which the project takes place (An exception exists for projects that occur during the summertime: students are not required to be concurrently enrolled in three courses in such cases. But in all cases, students must not have completed all their degree requirements before the project occurs).

Students working on a group project are encouraged to submit a single group application. In such cases, the application form must be filled out by at least two co-applicants, each of whom meets the three conditions above.

Level of Funding: Normally, each application (whether from a group or an individual) may request no more than $1,500 per academic year. Projects may be awarded the full amount requested, a partial amount, or no funds. Normally, applicants may apply for only one Student Project Grant per
deadline date. 

Funded Projects: In previous years, the Arts Student Project Grant has funded the Criminal Justice Prison Trip; Politics and Governance Ottawa Trip; The Arteries Undergraduate Research Conference, The Continuist Zine, Iranian New Year event at Ryerson; new on-campus student groups, such as Students for Fair Voting; Engineers Without Borders National Conference; participation in the Global Volunteer Network’s Rwandan Literacy Program; and more.

Application Deadline: Wednesday, November 1st, 2017 at 4:00 pm
