The GSA provides support to financial partners like the Graduate Student Endowment Fund (GSEF) which offers funding for graduate student-led initiatives.

Graduate Studies Endowment Fund

The Graduate Studies Endowment Fund (GSEF) is a graduate student-run organization that exists to support improvements to the overall graduate student experience at the University of Waterloo. All registered graduate students make a contribution of $20 per term. With your contribution, GSEF is able to support projects like improving graduate spaces and conferences, research travel assistantships, and the 3 Minute Thesis. 

Projects fall under the following three themes:

  • Social
  • Community
  • Academic
