Funding Support from Complimentary Funding

The Student Experience Office (SEO) facilitates opportunities for students to offset their program costs, which include flights, accommodation, and food*. Last year, participants received on average $673 in funding support (from the CUSA Student Initiative Fund, faculty contributions, and fundraisers organized by the SEO). Note: This figure is an average.

Additionally, team advisors and leaders provide guidance to participants on individual fundraising and, the SEO partners with offices and departments across campus to offer awards to a variety of student groups; visit ASB Awards and Sponsorship for more details.

For more information on all sources of funding, please contact Dwaine Taylor, the Student Development and Community Outreach Coordinator.
