Who knows what students want better than the students themselves?
In FIMS, Media, Information and Technoculture (MIT) students have taken it upon themselves to help shape their own experience, using a ‘students supporting students’ model. The Undergraduate Students’ Fund (USF) was established to enhance the operation of the MIT Student Council by funding exciting projects, services and events for FIMS undergraduates that would not otherwise be available, explains Kathie Hess, Senior Academic Counsellor.
The FIMS USF is a collection of funds that any member of the Faculty of Information and Media Studies (including students, staff, and faculty) may apply to for initiatives that benefit the FIMS undergraduate student body.
You can apply for a grant to use towards a book club, conference, internship transportation, exchange transportation, or a zine. The USF wants to support you! Make sure to include a cost breakdown of where every dollar will be spent (including taxes).
