2017/18 - OCAD Student Union Grants Application Form
The OCAD Student Union believes the ideas and dreams of students should not be limited to the size of their wallets. SU Project Grants provide an opportunity for student members (part-time, full-time, graduate, undergrad and student groups) to receive partial or full funding to realize projects, host events or do other creative initiatives that would otherwise be unattainable due to financial barriers. Our goal is to create opportunities that directly benefit the OCAD U Student community as a whole. Projects where one student’s personal gain is paramount will not qualify for funding.

Grant applications will be submitted to the OCAD SU Project Grants Committee and evaluated using our Funding Rubric. The highest scoring proposals will receive funding. Proposals are juried by the SU Grants Committee consisting of the SU Director of Operations, Director of Diversity and Equity, Director of Xpace and an External Artist/Designer. No funding will be issued after the granting period is over.
