QPIRG McGill’s Board of Directors sets aside an annual budget exclusively for funding smaller-scale, non-institutional, external projects. Campus and community groups are encouraged to apply to this discretionary fund when planning any goal-oriented social justice or environmental event. Applicants who fit our mandate can expect between 0$ – 250$, as we must often split the fund between half a dozen projects.
Priority is given to projects unlikely to receive funding from mainstream sources, such as McGill University, the Federal Government, the National Film Board, et al.
QPIRG McGill’s Discretionary Fund is disbursed once every 2-3 weeks.
