- New Students Program (Community Orientation Initiaive)
This is also part of CCSL, and collects a fee from all new students (approximately $200,000). The money is spent on orientation projects although a lot of it is used internally; about $80,000 is set aside for student initiatives. You can apply to the NSP fund in June of each year for projects aimed at the whole Concordia community. The projects don't need to happen in orientation period, but as said before they must have the whole community as an intended audience. Apply by handing in a plan for your proposal to H-440 or AD-103. For more information, contact email@example.com.
- Office of the President
Although very little money is normally given for projects, you can still apply to the Office of the President for funding. Apply by handing in a proposal for your project to the President's office at GM-801.
- Colleges, Schools and Departments
For a speaker of an academic nature, funds can be made available through the related department. For example, if you are bringing in a speaker on an environmental issue, the Department of Geography could contribute funding. Again, apply early, as funding is limited. Contributions from departments vary, but tend to be approximately $100. Apply by handing in a plan for your project to the department. Remember if your project touches on more than one issue, you can apply to more than one department.
- Office of Alumni Affairs
There are three Alumni funds to apply to, the Sir George Alumni, the Loyola Alumni and the Concordia Alumni. The Loyola Alumni have more money than the Sir George Alumni, but tend to only fund things that benefit the Loyola campus. As well, the office of Alumni Affairs, that administers both groups, has a small fund available for student projects. Apply by handing in a plan for your project to 1250 Guy St .
