Turn your initiative into reality!

Have a great idea for activity at U of T and need some funds to make it happen? The Student Initiative Fund (SIF) offers financial support to projects that enhance the student experience and foster a sense of community at the University of Toronto.

  • add value to the University of Toronto community
  • broadly align with the University of Toronto’s mission, vision and values as outlined in the University’s Statement of Institutional Purpose
