Whether you are looking to fund an activity or looking to attend a conference, there are a number of other granting resources on campus. Depending on your group’s mandate, your group may be eligible for some of the following grants.
Be sure to check with the specific Faculty, Department, or Service for the grant eligibility, requirements and deadlines.
The Career Centre has put together a very comprehensive list of granting sources on and off campus which you can access on this Google Document!
We have listed some more details on specific on-campus grants below:
Coca-Cola Activation Fund
Description: As part of the Single Source Cold Beverage Agreement, Coca-Cola offers student groups the opportunity to apply for free beverages to help them host amazing events at the University of Alberta!
- No monetary value - only in-kind beverages (water, juice, pop) can be provided. Available beverages are listed here.
- Have to be a registered student group
- Groups can receive it only once per fiscal year (May - April)
- Groups only ask for 1 beverage per person attending the event (estimates are ok, so if they are expecting 1000 people attending, they can only ask for 1000 beverage items)
- Event has to happen on U of A campus and have students as the target audience of the event
- Event has to highlight the contribution of Coca-cola in some way (recommended: having a simple print out by the beverages area saying "These beverages are provided by Coca-Cola Activation Fund")
To apply: Submit your request form via BearsDen. Please submit your request at least 21 days before your event to ensure we have time to process your order. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
