Choosing the right type of financing avenue

Applying for funding

Once you have identified your funding avenue, you should download the application forms, fill them out, and submit them through the forms sent out monthly by the VP finance, from the email address Alternatively, you may send the VP Finance an email. Please use the templates provided. If applications are made without the templates, they are more difficult to process, and risk being rejected entirely.

When filling in application forms, it is best to be detailed. Expense items should be broken down as much as possible, receipt by receipt if possible. Include contingencies where applicable - a 5% allowance is normally made for larger projects. At this stage, cost estimates are fine, since funding applications are only being approved. By having applications approved, you gain the right to requisition your approved funds in the future.

Cheque requisitions

If - and only if - you have funding that was approved by EngSoc, you may redeem your approved funds after the fact. You will require actual receipts that show the funds were actually spent on the expense items. Credit card receipts are not admissible. Cheque requisitions may be made by physical cheque or by Interac transfer. Visit the cheque requisitions page for details and the application form.
