About the Special Projects Fund
The Special Projects Fund is a limited amount of money set aside to fund projects that do not fall into the other categories. Projects should be of academic or social value to graduate students at Concordia, and should respect the goals of the GSA as expressed in the Bylaws.
In order to qualify for Special Projects funding an applicant must:
- be an individual registered in a graduate program at Concordia, or
- be a registered GSA departmental association

- composition and printing of promotional materials
- seed money for new ongoing projects (e.g., journals)
- consumable materials (e.g., art supplies)
Examples of what will not be covered:
- food and drink
- pay for researchers, organizers, etc.
