Arts Undergraduate Improvement Fund Decisions

webmaster Updates

The Arts Undergraduate Improvement Fund Committee met last night (February 10th) for just over two hours for Funding February. Some noteworthies about AUIF:

– The fund contained $208 469.87

– As per the bylaws, 10% of the gross amount was set aside for the Arts Internship Office ($20 846.99), and 5% capped at $10 000 was set aside for the Fine Arts Council ($10 000)

– After these set-asides, $176 897.82 was available for funding proposals, which meant roughly $46 500 of funding applications had to be rejected

– Any AUS-affiliated group can submit applications (enclosed inside the zipped file). Departmental association/student group applications require 2/3 approval to pass, and Faculty initiated applications require 4/5 approval to pass

– AUIF is supposed to prioritize library improvements

– In total, AUS student group related grants (including FAC) totalled $24 000.15

– A note to everyone reading: please take care of university property. It’s expensive to buy and replace. For example, those human body chairs in McLennan-Redpath cost over a thousand dollars each. If you take a look at the Faculty initiated proposals, it’s quite incredible how much student space improvements cost.
