The Regina Public Interest Research Group (RPIRG) is a student centre at the University of Regina that works on social and environmental justice issues. RPIRG gives out over $35,000 in funding each year to students for events, projects, or training opportunities.
Any student at the University of Regina is eligible (and encouraged!) to apply for funding. Non-student groups can take out a community membership to apply.
Applications are due by midnight on one of the 5 annual funding deadlines.
July 1 - Oct 1 - Nov 1 - Feb 1 - March 1
Working Group Funding provides yearly-long funding for a group that has consistent programming.
Working Groups are semi-autonomous groups of students and community members who work together on an issue, or towards a common goal. Working Groups may focus on research, events, actions, publications, and other diverse activities. They tend to have long-term goals with activities and membership that continue beyond the current academic year, hold regular meetings, and must maintain a membership that includes University of Regina students. Working Groups receive $1,500 per year. Working Groups may also use other non-financial RPIRG resources, and are eligible to apply for additional funding through the Project, Event, and Training Fund.
After being approved, a Working Group will receive:
Support and funding of $1500 per year
Space on the RPIRG webpage
Access to office resources, such as occasional photocopying and the button maker or some bookkeeping assistance
The opportunity to apply for Event/Project funding
