Working Group Funding provides yearly-long funding for a group that has consistent programming.
Working Groups are semi-autonomous groups of students and community members who work together on an issue, or towards a common goal. Working Groups may focus on research, events, actions, publications, and other diverse activities. They tend to have long-term goals with activities and membership that continue beyond the current academic year, hold regular meetings, and must maintain a membership that includes University of Regina students. Working Groups receive $500 in funding per semester for three semesters ($1,500 per year). Working Groups may also use other non-financial RPIRG resources, and are eligible to apply for additional funding through the Project, Event, and Training Fund.
After being approved, a Working Group will receive:
Support and funding of up to $500 per semester
Space on the RPIRG webpage
Access to office resources, such as photocopying and the button maker
The opportunity to apply for Event/Project funding
