The grant is available to education graduate students as a source of funding to help support learning activities that enrich a student’s focus of study. Such learning activities include attending conferences, engaging in field research, or attending events that traditionally do not fall under the category of conferences or field research but are nonetheless of value to a student’s professional development. Education graduate students are eligible for up to $400 per academic year (September 1 to August 31), pending available funds. Professional Development Grants will be allocated by lottery.
The purpose of the Community Development Grant (CDG) is to build community within the SFU Faculty of Education, especially EGSA members. Examples of community development activities are movie nights, seminar series, Grad Retreat, Learning Together Conference, Ed Review online publication, and so on. The central feature is that the community is to be composed mostly of EGSA members.
