Microgrant Funding

This grant stream supports one-time funding to undergraduate students at the University of Alberta who are not currently receiving any other APIRG funds. This stream provides up to $100 maximum to support with smaller scale costs. Applications are accepting on a rolling basis throughout Fall and Winter semesters. 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.
