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.
