The Social Fund is to support Graduate Student Associations and Departments to host social events to foster a stronger and more visible graduate student community at Western.
The Social Fund is not meant to replace or supplement Graduate Association/Department funding, but to provide additional support in order to strengthen relationships within and between Graduate Associations/Departments.
Supports can include (but are not limited to):
- help coordinating event logistics
- brainstorming event ideas
- room booking, ticket sales
- advertising, board game loans
- helping staff the event, prizes
- Grad Club money or financial support
