Welcome to the Graduate Studies Endowment Fund

The Graduate Studies Endowment Fund (GSEF) at the University of Waterloo was created by a graduate student referendum in 2001-2002 for the purpose of "funding an on-going commitment to enhance the learning, research, and overall experience of graduate students at the University."
