Funding Overview

 

Funding

Requests for funding are administered through the Lassonde Student Welcome & Support Centre.

Funding allocation will be reviewed by the Lassonde Student Funding Committee. Applications for funding can be submitted by the Lassonde Student Government, recognized Lassonde affiliated student groups/clubs, or Lassonde students.

The individual or the club applying for funding must be in good financial standing with the university (i.e. no outstanding fees).

The approval of an application for funding depends upon the availability of the fund and the established priority in relation to other requests. Please note that a subsidy from Lassonde may only be a partial subsidy – we may not be able to cover the entire amount of your request.
