Unfortunately we are not running our Sponsorship/ECIF program this term. The funds for this program come from our student fee, and because the Engineering Society did not collect a student fee this term, we do not have the financial resources to run this program. We regret that we cannot support student groups this term, but we look forward to continuing funding in future terms.
The Engineering Capital Improvements Fund (ECIF) is used to support lasting capital improvements to student space and services in the Engineering Society. Each term, a certain percentage of the budget is allocated towards this fund (15% in the Fall and Winter, 5% in the Spring).
In the past, ECIF has funded a number of purchases, such as furniture for the POETS patio, a new projector for POETS, a drum kit, speakers and lighting equipment, and a bike repair stand. The ECIF funds are allocated by the Board of Directors, which is made up of 4 “A” Society At-Large Students, 4 “B” Society At-Large Students, the Engineering Society Business Manager, both Engineering Society Presidents, and both Engineering Society Vice-Presidents Finance. Any student is able to submit a proposal for the fund, which can be done year-round below.
