The Grant for Concordia Student Groups provides funding and support for faith-related projects and travel for conferences and retreats that align with the mission of MFSC.
Please fill in all sections of the online application form and submit it at least one month before the beginning of the project or event.
Once you have submitted the online application form, please email a detailed budget to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will only be considered once we have received both the application form and the budget.
The Grant Committee of MFSC manages the selection process, and all communication regarding the grants (questions, applications and reimbursement information) can go through our email contact: email@example.com.
First-time requests will be given priority. Groups can only apply once within each academic year.
Grant applications should clearly demonstrate how the event or project relates to MFSC’s mission of opening hearts and minds to diverse expressions of the human spirit.
Applications for travel to retreats or conferences must show how attendees will learn or other benefit with the broader group and other members of the university community.
The student group contact person will receive an e-mail explaining the results of the process including how to prepare for the payment processing. Refused applications will receive a list of alternate funding sources.
All decisions of the committee are final.
To claim funding, submit the claim electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that payment can take up to six (6) weeks.
Reimbursements will be made to either the student group account or the person who incurred the expenses.
You need to provide a detailed budget plan before the grant application committee can review it. The grant committee will only reimburse expenses that are listed on the budget, unless they approve other expenses beforehand.
For conferences or retreats, allowable expenses are travel, conference or retreat registration fees, and room and board. Expenses for alcohol will not be reimbursed. Travel expenses will be covered in accordance with university travel guidelines.
You should submit your receipts for reimbursement no later than one month after the conclusion of the conference/retreat/event. Only original receipts will be accepted for reimbursement.
The request for reimbursement should be submitted with a one-page summary of the event, including the following:
A description of the event/project/conference and its impact on participants and the broader group.
Updated financial statements showing actual expenses and revenue
Any pictures, videos or copies of publications created in the context of the project, if possible.
A list of the students that attended the event, name, and student ID numbers
