The Engineering Undergraduate Support Fund (EUSF) is a student fee based fund dedicated to providing additional human resources relating to academics for engineering undergraduates. This includes positions that would otherwise be covered by the university, includeing but not limited to TA hours, lab technician hours, funding staff members of MESC and Departmental Offices, and more. The EUSF is to fund academic or professional development activities organized by the faculty, the departments, or departmental societies. It is composed of fees paid by engineering undergraduate students.

Breakdown

Fifty percent of the fund is allocated to McGill Engineering Student Centre (MESC) proposals only and the remaining portion is for departmental proposals.

Departments will each receive a fixed allotment of 20% and a variable allotment that is proportional to the fraction of the number of engineering students enrolled in the respective department. Money for a proposal can only be collected upon which proof that the proposal has been fulfilled is provided to the faculty finance manager.

Allocation

EUSF is allocated at the beginning of each semester, once the semester starts and applications are released, proposals can be submitted to VP Academics of each department.

The Engineering Undergraduate Support Fund is allocated on a semesterly basis. Below you can find a general distribution of funds per semester per department. Hyperlinks in the table header will link to the specific semesterly allocation.
