The Student Educational Enhancement Fund (SEEF) was established to support student learning and development outside of the classroom, directly related to a student’s program of study and educational goals. This award fund is intended to support co-curricular activities of current students (activities that do not result in academic credit). Normally, the following types of expenses will be funded:
- Travel including flights and hotels
- Registration including conference, workshops, memberships and professional development.
- Materials including research supplies and presentation supplies.
Please be aware that we will only reimburse/fund for expenses explicitly approved in the application. The EEF is not intended to be used for tuition, books, student fees, or other costs related directly to academic course work. Students are limited to a maximum award of $500 per academic year. Approval is subject to availability of funding each semester and volume of requests received.
"EFF is a great resource that UFV offers for students to enhance their leadership skills! The funding helped me register and fly to a leadership conference out of province and acquire certain management skills that I could bring back for the well-being of UFV Residence!" - Anish Bahri, EEF recipient 2013
Students who will be attending an activity as part of a club or association are each required to submit his/her own EEF application package. Please provide details on expenses that will be shared. This information will be considered in the adjudication process of your application.
Only word-processed proposals will be accepted (minimum 200 words).
The proposal should address how the activity contributes to the students' educational goals. Proposals that can clearly show a link between UFV's Institutional Learning Outcomes and the proposed activity will be given priority.
The proposal should clearly indicate the dollar amount being requested with a breakdown of types of expenses. If support is being solicited from more than one department at UFV, that information should be included.
For other types of financial assistance, students can contact Financial Aid and Awards.
