President's Fund - Sponsorship

Funding Guidelines and Criteria for the President’s Fund 

Description and Criteria

The President’s Fund (the Fund) sponsors activities and events that relate to the current priorities of the President. In order to guide sponsorship, the following strategy has been implemented to evaluate requests made for support from the Fund:

1)      University of Saskatchewan Connection: Activities sponsored by the President’s Fund require a strong connection to the University of Saskatchewan. Such activity would normally be administered by a college, department or unit of the university or by a student organization endorsed by the university. The goal of this tenet is to ensure donor funds given to the university remain at the university as much as is reasonably possible. Activities external to the institution will be considered of low priority.

2)      Student Activities: Those activities that have that most direct impact on students will be given stronger consideration.

3)      One-time / Term Funding:  The Fund is intended to provide one-time or term funding for new activities and should not be used to provide ongoing or permanent funding support. It is hoped that the Fund can be used for one-time activities or for providing an injection of funding to implement a new activity. In some cases, consideration of multi-year funding may be entertained, but those circumstances would be the exception and not the rule.

4)      Innovation: Activities that are considered unique and innovative will be given strong   consideration. This tenet is in place because it is often difficult to identify start-up funding to support such activities.
