SU Quality Money and Sustainability Fund Deadlines: Nov. 24
Finally, SU Quality Money is a program that funds projects and programming that improve campus life. In the past, we’ve funded brilliant ideas like scholarships and bursaries, study space renovations, and free period products in Mac Hall. This year, we have combined the deadline with the SU Sustainability Fund. If you’ve got a big idea, apply for a one of these grants and make it a reality. The deadline is November 24. Need some inspiration? Check out the hundreds of projects we’ve funded already.
I’ll be back with another email soon, and in the meantime, the best way to stay up to date is to follow the SU on social media, @SUUofC.
Your Students’ Union President,
Shaziah Jinnah Morsette
