Event Project Grant Application

There are no set deadlines for event/project grant applications, however the LPIRG Board of Directors will look more favourably on applications that are submitted at least 3 weeks prior to the event/project. The Board may consider funding retroactively provided the application is submitted before the event. Please remember that LPIRG board members have student schedules and applications will not be processed during holiday seasons. Please allow 3 weeks for processing.
