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 $45,000 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 can also be made to retroactively fund students (for events that have already happened, up to 1 year previous).
Applications are due by midnight on one of the 5 annual funding deadlines.
July 1 - Oct 1 - Nov 1 - Feb 1 - March 1
Training and Research Funding provides one-time funding to help individuals and groups attend a conference, training opportunity, or grad research that is focused on social or environmental justice issues.
One of our goals is for our funding to benefit the largest amount of students possible. Although RPIRG provides funding for the above, we have a limit for how much an individual or group can apply for. This limit is in place because we recognize that although these opportunities are very valuable for those students that attend, the knowledge brought back to the larger University community is more limited that initiatives taking place on campus or in the city.
- Individuals are eligible to apply for up to $600.
- Groups (3+ people) are eligible to apply for up to $2000. If you are applying for funding for 2 people, you can also submit one group application, but the maximum funding they will be eligible for is $1200.
If you have a group attending a conference, you must apply for funding as a group. RPIRG will not accept multiple individual applications for the same conference.
Grad student funding *NEW CATEGORY*
Grad students engaging in research projects can apply for up to $800 in research funding - with funding being prioritized for research taking place in Regina and Saskatchewan, or benefitting groups or communities living there. Applicants can only receive funding once per project, and cannot pair it with conference/training funding.
