$300 Unique Event Grant Application

If your club offers an event that you believe is the first or only of its kind currently being run at Curtin by a student club or society, you may apply for $300 in funding towards the costs associated with the event. This grant can only be redeemed once per calendar year, for a single event, in a single lump sum amount.

Unique Event Grant applications must be submitted prior to expenditure, as approval is not guaranteed and is highly discretionary.

The minimum criteria for this grant are as follows:
* Event must be run on campus.
* Club’s membership list must comprise of at least 51% of members with Full Guild membership.
* Applications for funding must be submitted before the end of the calendar year, of the year of registration.
* Funds cannot be used to pay for alcohol in any capacity.
* All associated promotional materials must include a reasonably sized Guild logo (available from Student Engagement Coordinator).

Grant approval is at the sole discretion of the Guild Executive Council, and will also depend on the event being determined by both the Student Engagement Coordinator and Guild Executive Council to be truly unique amidst club events on campus.

A few examples of events unlikely to be considered "unique" for the purposes of this event include:

  • Networking / industry events
  • End-of-year wind-up events
  • Movie nights
  • "Fresher" parties
  • Quiz nights
