HAVE A COOL PROJECT? YOU COULD BE AWARDED $500 - $1500 in funding!
The purpose of the VIPIRG Grants Program is to support students carrying out action-based projects at the University of Victoria and in the greater Victoria community. VIPIRG offers students support through small and large grants as well as workshop/conference grants for UVic students.
VIPIRG is based in the University of Victoria, as such UVic students are prioritized in our funding process.
Grant applications are reviewed once a year. The next grants deadline is January 31 2019 at midnight.
Funding to attend conferences and workshops are reviewed on a rolling basis. Average processing time is 4 weeks.
Please note applicants are only eligible for any form of VIPIRG funding once each fiscal year (September to August).
Priority is given to:
University of Victoria students
Groups that engage with the University of Victoria campus
Groups working on the following issues: sustainability, student engagement, poverty, harm reduction, and strengthening relationships with local indigenous nations.
Groups that demonstrate accessibility and long-term vision
