Special Projects

Students can apply for Special Projects funding from the Engineering Society for one-time purchases which benefit their organization or the Skule community as a whole.

Purchases that are typically eligible for Special Projects Funding are:

  • Tools, equipment, or instruments (e.g. a drill press for use in club projects)
  • Hosting a non-annual conference
  • New ideas that are not a part of the typical EngSoc budget (e.g. Skule Kup in its first year)

Some examples of past Special Projects are:

  • A new Suds fridge
  • Tools for the Blue and Gold Committee
  • Instruments for the Skule Orchestra and the LGMB
  • Hosting the 2012 Ontario Engineering Competitions at the University of Toronto
  • A rocket test stand for University of Toronto Aerospace Team

How to apply:

Applications should be sent via email to both vpfinance@skule.ca and finance.secretary@skule.ca. Applications should include:

  • The name and contact information of the person or organization which is requesting funding
  • A cover letter detailing the impact and scope of your proposed project and its benefit to the Skule community
  • A budget for the project in Canadian dollars, including all potential revenue sources, all expenses, a reasonable contingency or buffer, and comments describing each item.
  • A plan for how the project will be carried out, including a timeline of the work.
  • A list of the full-time and part-time engineering students in the organization which is requesting funding (not necessary for affiliated clubs or project directorships)
