This award is meant to be used for events or purchases
that a GSA deems necessary for community building amongst their
constituent graduate students. Every GSA is entitled to a fixed amount
each year, based on their student enrollment. The GSGA Vice-President
is in charge of allocating this amount to each of the groups, as well
as notifying each group of their fund amounts. There is no pre-approval
required to use this award. Groups can use the allocated amount in one
go or spread it over the entire GSGA year. This amount has no bearing
on individual student awards.
