Grant for Concordia Religious and Spiritual Student Groups

Funding Guidelines

Multi-faith and Spirituality Centre  (MfSC) at Concordia University is a student service department that seeks to raise religious literacy on campus, facilitate interfaith and intercultural understanding among students, and to connect students of faith with their campus communities.

Purpose of the Grant

The purpose of this grant is to enable religious or spiritual student groups at Concordia to fund members to attend conferences or retreats to benefit members of the club, and that also tie in with the mission of Multi-faith and Spirituality Centre.

As well, student groups may also apply for this grant to use towards projects that engage other students or student groups in faith, interfaith or intercultural encounters. We also encourage collaboration between clubs. Examples could include an interfaith boardgame night, potluck, open mic, panel, conference, hosting an open holy day celebration etc.  

How to apply:

All applications must be submitted to Multi-faith and Spirituality Centre at mfsc@concordia.ca at least one month before the beginning of the conference/retreat/event.

All sections of the application must be completed.

Incomplete applications will not be accepted.

Selection Procedure

Selection process is managed by a Grant Committee of MFSC. The Grant Committee will be the sole liaison between the Multi-faith and Spirituality Centre and project applicants.

First-time requests will be given priority. Groups can only apply once within each academic year.

The Main Contact Person will receive an e-mail explaining the results of the process. The email will include details of the procedures to be followed for processing their funding (see below). Those being refused funding will be provided with the reasons for the refusal and a list of possible alternate funding sources where applicable.

All decisions of the committee are final.

  • Receipts for reimbursement must be submitted no later than one month after the conclusion of the conference/retreat/event
