The GSU offers several different avenues for graduate students to avail in terms of funding. Kindly click on the relevant heading(s) below for more information. 

Click here to download a presentation that our Executive Director of Finance compiled to summarize these various funding opportunities for you!

Also note that electronic copies of the forms needed to avail of these funding grants are located at the bottom of the page.


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

  • 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.
