We know that as an undergraduate student you have to balance between several different priorities: Your tuition, your rent, your groceries. This is especially hard when you're living in one of the most expensive cities in the world.
At the same time, you are expected to "make the most out of your experience." Part of that involves attending conferences on topics that excite you or even conducting your independent economic research project. When you are doing something as awesome as that, financial constraints always come into play.
The Vancouver School fo Economics Undergraduate Society Student Grants program is designed to help you overcome those financial hardships.
In order to qualify for the Student Initiative Grant, you need to meet the following criteria.
You are currently majoring in an Economics program at UBC (BA or BIE)
You are able to demonstrate how the grant will benefit your undergraduate experience, as well as how your initiatives will contribute to the greater Economics student community at UBC.
