Individual Merit Fund
Application Form Winter 2018
The application for the Winter 2018 semester is now open. Applications received will be considered at the end of January 2018.
Please note the terms of reference for MUNSU's Individual Merit Fund:

a. An Individual Merit Fund (IMF) shall be defined as a grant awarded to a member of MUNSU to offset expenses involved in an activity for which they have been chosen to participate in, or otherwise merits attendance on the basis that it relates to their course of studies or involvement in some extra-curricular activity. An IMF shall not exceed $100 per applicant.
b. If a member requests an IMF to offset expenses of an academic program which will entitle them to academic credit at Memorial University, that academic program must take place outside of the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and must not take place at a Memorial University campus (i.e. St. John’s, Corner Brook, St. Pierre, or Harlow).
c. An IMF shall not be awarded to offset the expenses of a student work term.
d. Electives and selectives offered by the Faculty of Medicine are not to be considered equivalent to work terms.
e. All applicants for IMFs must be submitted during the same semester as the event for which funding is requested. Each application must invlude supporting documentation such as a brochure on the event, a website address or an acceptance letter.
f. Where there are a number of students participating in one event, MUNSU will grant IMFs to a maximum of $500 per event. This funding shall be divided equally amongst applicants requesting funding as per this procedure.
g. IMFs and Special Project Grants will not be awarded for the same event.
h. An IMF shall not be awarded to offset the costs involved for such tests as, but not limited to, the LSAT, GMAT, MCAT, or any costs associated with such academic items.
i. Failure to submit receipts or other documentation indicating attendance at the approved event by the end of the appropriate semester will invalidate that individual’s right to apply for an IMF in the following semester.
