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.
A committee of students and staff will review requests of up to $5000 and award funds for projects, events or activities that will benefit students at the U of T St. George campus.
In order to be eligible for funding, projects should:
- contribute positively to the University of Toronto student experience
- reach a broad student community
- 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

Requests for funding from the SIF may be submitted by any University of Toronto student or student group at St. George.
