Microgrant Funding

Grants of $150 are available to undergrad students (who are not accessing other APIRG funding) to support small events and increase accessibility for their projects and events. Use it to pay for captioning services, translation, printing, food, childcare, transportation costs, etc!

This grant can be accessed at anytime – there are no deadlines!


Some examples of how this funding has been used include:

  1. The Women’s Law Forum accessed $100 to cover food for participants when they booked a workshop with APIRG staff.
  2. A student organized a hygiene product drive for the Campus Food Bank and accessed the microgrant to pay for printing and supplies.
  3. A student group organized a workshop series on anti-racism and accessed the microgrant to pay for food, bus tickets and workshop supplies.

Please read Microgrant Funding Info for eligibility details, stipulations and funding priorities.
