The Graduate Studies Endowment Fund (GSEF) exists to support improvements in the graduate student experience at the University of Waterloo. All registered graduate students make a refundable contribution of $20 per term. Half of this money goes to the capital fund, while the other half is spent on four programs. These are: projects, research travel assistantships, doctoral thesis completion awards, and support for the annual Graduate Studies Research Conferences. For more information on these programs, including application forms and to find out how to obtain a refund, please visit www.gsef.uwaterloo.ca.
GSEF is run by graduate student volunteers. To find out how you can get involved, or if you have any other questions regarding the fund, please contact the coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org
