Funding Application.

Apply For Funding

About the SEC Fund:

The Student Environment Centre supports many local grassroots initiatives with funding. If you have an idea for a project (event, program, campaign, etc.) that is concerned with sustainability and/or the environment, we would love to hear about it! Please feel free to fill out one of the funding applications below and send it to sec.ubc@gmail.com to be considered for SEC funding. Then, come to one of our meetings to propose your idea and receive feedback on it (optional).

Please allow several weeks of notice to ensure that we are able to consider your proposal before the project date. Our meetings occur weekly, on Mondays from 5-6 PM in Room 2102 of the AMS Student Nest, and all funding applications submitted by Thursday at 11:59 PM will be discussed at the meeting the following week; otherwise, it will be moved to the agenda for the week after that.

SEC Fund: Resource Guidelines

 Requirements for SEC Funding:

  • Your project must relate to sustainability or environmental issues, which may be either on or off campus.*
  • Events and programs must be open to all UBC students.
  • You must remain in contact with SEC executives throughout the planning process, during the implementation of the project, and after the project has been completed, to provide us with a summary of how things turned out.
  • You must maintain clear financial documentation of your project and provide all requested proof-of-purchases within 2 weeks of your initiative/event in order to receive reimbursements.

*Even though your project may not relate directly to the environment, we encourage you to make your event(s) as eco-friendly as possible by referring to the SEC Fund: Resource Guidelines above. In order to promote the culture of sustainability at UBC, we would consider funding events not directly related to environmental issues provided there has been a clear commitment to making the event as sustainable as possible.

We highly recommend that you be as specific as possible in your application so that we do not have to send it back with additional questions, delaying the process.

How to Submit Funding Applications:

Completed forms can be emailed to sec.ubc@gmail.com (preferred) or dropped off at our office, Room 2106 of in the AMS Student Nest. You are also welcome (but not required) to attend our weekly meetings to present your project idea to our group. However, we would appreciate an email informing us of this intent at least 48 hours in advance. The executive team and other active members of SEC would be happy to help you formulate your project as well as assist with its development and applications for funding.

How to Collect Reimbursements:

If your funding application is approved, SEC will reimburse you for the specified purchases and expenses. You must provide our Treasurer with receipts and/or proof-of-purchases. Reimbursement usually takes about 5 business days and can be picked up from the AMS offices on the 3rd floor of the AMS Student Nest. Please bring a valid ID when you go to collect the reimbursement. In the event that a student is unable to make the necessary purchase(s) to start their project, arrangements for advance funding can be made.
