The 2021-22 GSS Department Grant is now available to help develop academic unit associations or for academic or social events organized by and for graduate students.

As with last year, following the direction from the Graduate Representative Council that the GSS prioritize development and support of independent graduate student associations in every academic unit, there are two funding streams to support association development and social/academic activities.  The GSS 2021-22 Department Grant is available to eligible academic units who wish to organize a COVID-safe event/project that can be completed before March 31, 2022, OR, start-up funds for an academic unit that wishes to begin development of a formal academic unit association.
