Departmental Trips Fund
2014-2015 $6,000
2015-2016 $6,000
2016-2017 $6,125

The Departmental Trips Fund is a dedicated sum of money allocated from the operating budget of the EUS, mainly student fees, to which engineering departmental societies can apply to.


There are three categories of trips defined in the bylaws which have different requirements and criteria:

  1. Sports Trips: $5/student
  2. Industry Tours (day-trip): $5/student
  3. Industry Tours (overnight) $15/student
  4. Conferences: $75/student

Keep in mind that these are maximum values. Depending on how full the fund is and how beneficial your trip is to students, the amount given may vary.


You can apply to the Departmental Trips Fund at all times by emailing your full application to the VP Finance of the EUS. This fund is allocated in a first come first serve basis; it is always best to apply as early in the year as possible.
Be reasonable when asking for support and indicate other funding sources when applying – the departmental trips fund is relatively small and does anticipate that students will still have to pay out of pocket for some expenses. This fund is helpful in reducing, but not eliminating trip costs.
The application requires the following documents to be submitted:

  1. Written request
  2. Detailed itinerary
  3. Budget
  4. List of participants, and their departments
