The Special Grants Fund was established to provide year round funding opportunities for special projects and initiatives that enhance the student experience and enrich the University Community. This fund supports recognized student groups, clubs, and registered students to run activities, programs or events. The Speakers' Fund supports groups that would normally not have enough funds to host high profile speakers on campus.
