Special Grants

Special Grants are one-time annual grants available only to UTGSU-recognized course unions with a Membership less than 100 full-time equivalent students (FTEs). The project detailed in your Special Grant application must be aimed at the entire graduate student population of your department and cannot cater to only one segment of your course union’s Membership. Please see application form for additional eligibility criteria.
