Every year since 2002, the Graduating BCom Class has donated money to the Alberta School of Business, and this has been matched (up to $5,000.00 per year) by an anonymous donor. Money in the Grad Class Gift has been made available to individual students or student groups to support any activity or expenditure that enriches student life in the Alberta School of Business. In the past, money has been given to buy microwaves for the student lounge, to buy water bottles for an intramural hockey team, to support conference attendance, and to subsidize student membership in professional organizations. Students interested in applying for the Grad Class Gift for funding should review the application form. Funding recommendations are made by a committee consisting of student members, subject to the approval of the Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs.
The committee will review all proposals and make recommendations for disbursement of funds. Primary consideration will be given to new initiatives and activities and only in the absence of such new initiatives will existing student activities/projects be considered. Students are encouraged to be imaginative and innovative in thinking of projects, events or expenditures that will have a positive effect on student life at the Alberta School of Business. Funding will not normally be given to cover the full cost of any initiative. When making your request, please keep in mind the amounts available are modest.
Proposals must identify the following:
- the project or activity for which funding is being requested
- the student(s) or student group(s) involved
- the student(s) or student group(s) or others who will benefit
- the amount requested
- a budget of all expected expenses and revenues.
