MESSAGE from GSU FINANCIAL DIVISION (REOPENING with REDIRECTION)

This message is to inform you that the GSU has reopened the grant applications which were temporarily suspended.  Effective immediately, all applications must be directed to grants@gsumun.ca

  • Professional Development Grant (PDG)

  • Professional Membership Grant (PMG)

  • Special Purpose Grant (SPG)

 

The processing time will typically be 3-4 weeks so please ensure that you plan ahead with this in mind. To minimize any potential back and forth communication that delays the process further, we highly recommend that a completed application package for PMG and PDG be submitted.  

 

Please ensure that you include the following,

  1. Completed Grant Application Form

  2. Proof of Payment

  3. Purchase Invoice OR Email Confirmation

  4. Direct Deposit Registration Status (if applicable)

  5. Copy of Void Cheque and Direct Deposit Form (Only if the previous point is applicable, but not already registered)

 

Lastly, please note that grant support is always subject to availability at the time of review due to limited funding and is not otherwise guaranteed.  Please ensure you have alternative means to cover any grant application costs in the rare case that your application is not approved.

 

Once again, we appreciate your patience and support during these challenging times.

 

For any questions, please contact grants@gsumun.ca.
