Student Experience Grants
Financial support for student-initiated experiential learning opportunities
Activities offered through Experiential Education (EE) are only available to undergraduate students who meet our Eligibility Criteria.
All experience must include a hands-on, experiential element where the student is actively participating in or contributing to an activity.
Funding has been granted in the past to some of the following types of activities:
- Experiential conferences or workshops (attending or presenting at)
- Local, national, and international extra-curricular learning opportunities
- Faculty-supervised, non-credit, independent research or fieldwork
This list is not exhaustive. Students may apply for any opportunity that fits the criteria.
McMaster University/EE cannot fund an activity if travel warnings issued by Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada advise Canadians to avoid travel to the location of the student experience for any reason including civil unrest. It is also the responsibility of the student to determine if any inoculation/medical intervention or insurance is required for travel related to their experience and to ensure that these requirements are completed appropriately before departure.
The deadline dates for applications in 2016/2017 are as follows:
- Wednesday, November 2, 2016
- Wednesday, January 18, 2017
- Wednesday, March 1, 2017
- Wednesday, March 22, 2017
Normally, applications will not be accepted at other times. All applications are to be submitted in person to KTH 102 before 4 p.m. on the deadline date. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered, nor will applications submitted by email.
Several information sessions will be held in the fall and winter terms to review application guidelines and provide tips on writing a successful application. Students must register on OSCARplus to attend.
