Student Life Enhancement Fund-SLEF

Funding Available for Student Initiatives

Non-Academic Proposals for SLEF grants are now invited

from recognized student groups, administrative units, and academic departments, for new projects or the enhancement of existing services that will improve student life. Funding is reserved for projects that will be implemented during September 2014 - August 2015. However, projects proposed for implementation during the 2015 fall semester (September - December) will be considered under special circumstances.

Last year, funding per project ranged from $100.00 to $8,000.00.

Items eligible for funding include: staff costs, equipment, supplies, renovations, communication charges, and other operating expenses. Accredited student groups, student governments, and departments are eligible for consideration under this grant. If units submit more than one proposal, they must indicate the priority to which they would like them reviewed.

The majority of funding will be granted for one-year projects, but multi-year applications, up to a maximum of three-years, may be considered and will be subject to annual review and approval.


Preference will be given to new initiatives and projects. SLEF grants are not intended to support the continued operating expenses of existing programs. Please note that annual project submissions will be reviewed every year and the final report will be reviewed before subsequent funding is awarded. There is no guarantee of receipt of funding for projects that were previously awarded funds.


Please note that a new application will not be considered if the applicant(s) has not submitted a final report for a previously held grant.
