The Regina Public Interest Research Group (RPIRG) is a student centre at the University of Regina that works on social and environmental justice issues. RPIRG gives out up to $30,000 in funding each year to students for events, projects, or training opportunities.
Any student at the University of Regina is eligible (and encouraged!) to apply for funding.
Applications are due by midnight on one of the 5 annual funding deadlines.
July 1 - Oct 1 - Nov 1 - Feb 1 - March 1
The Event/Project Funding provides one-time funding and support to help groups and individual students.
An Event is defined as a one-time activity with a particular goal. For example, a workshop, rally, or speaker.
A Project is defined as a series of activities or events coordinated to reach a particular goal with specific start and end dates. For example, organizing a campaign with multiple aspects over a number of days or weeks.
Examples of Events/Projects that have been funded in the past include (but are by no means limited to):
Hosting a speaker
Coordinating skills workshops
Facilitating a lecture series
Organizing a rally/protest
Planning a week-long campaign
Please note: Fundraisers are generally not eligible for funding. If your fundraiser fits RPIRG's funding requirements and you believe it should be eligible for funding, you can bring your rational to the RPIRG Board of Directors and we will make a decision on a case-by-case basis.
We have a maximum of $5000 to give out each funding round. Please keep this in mind when you are deciding on how much funding to request in your application.
