SU Conference Funding

Due to limited funds and the popularity of the SU Conference Fund Program, not all requests that meet the established criteria will be approved. The Students’ Union will continue to process applications on a first-come, first-served basis until all program funds are expended.

Please read the guidelines carefully before applying for funding. Verify that you meet and understand all the conditions. It is your responsibility to ensure you satisfy all requirements.

Please review the accuracy of your application as no alterations or additions are accepted after submission. All required fields must properly filled in. Inaccurate or missing information may result in your application being rejected. There are no appeals for errors made on the application after the 20 day review date.

Your Students’ Union believes that not all lessons can be learned in the classroom. Many times valuable knowledge is gained through networking and challenging yourself through competition.

SU Conference Funding is available to all full and part-time undergraduate students at the University of Calgary wishing to attend a conference or competition related to their area of study or professional development. This funding is available on an individual basis only (even if you are attending as a group):

Students are eligible to receive up to two (2) SU Conference funds per academic year, each fund is a maximum of $200.00.
