Financial Support

The GSA provides financial support to graduate students and distributes more than $200,000 worth of awards, bursaries, grants, and Quality Money every year. Take advantage of these opportunities for any student initiatives, financial strain, or professional development.

Quality Money Program

The Graduate Students’ Association (GSA) of the University of Calgary is committed to enhancing the student experience. Quality Money initiatives and grants are one way that the GSA returns to the student community.

Emphasis is placed upon proposals which impact
the majority of students, promote multidisciplinary interactions, and integrate sustainable initiatives.
