Applications are due on the first of each month. Please apply before the deadline that is a minimum of 3 weeks prior to requiring funding. For example, if you need funding by September 14, please apply by August 1. You will be notified of the results within 2-3 weeks of your application. Upon receipt of the award, you may begin spending it immediately. The spending period is five months.

Large Project Funding Award

Term Deadline to Apply
(6th Friday of each term)
Applicants Notified of Results Spending Period
(Date of notification of results + 5 months)
Winter Mid-February Late March Date of notification of results – Aug 31
Spring Mid-June Late July Date of notification of results – Dec 31
Fall Mid-October Late November Date of notification of results – April 30

Be sure to apply for funding in advance of your planned event or project start date. Applications for events that take place before the spending period begins will be rejected. For example, if you are planning an event for mid-October, apply during Spring term, not in the Fall.

Special or large events requiring longer-term advance planning may apply earlier; they should clearly state when funds will be spent. Spending deadline extensions require advance permission from the GSEF Board of Directors.
