Funding

NSPIRG has been funding social and environmental justice projects in Nova Scotia since 1990.

The Board of NSPIRG welcomes funding proposals for research projects that focus on environmental or social justice issues and/or activities that promote the dissemination of relevant environmental and social justice research to the public.

All proposals must have a strong public education component. Aside from offering in-kind support, NSPIRG approves projects for funding amounts between $5 and $500, subject to the Board’s discretion.

Completed applications can be emailed to the Board or dropped off at the NSPIRG offices in room 314 of the Dalhousie SUB. If you are applying for funding please make sure that the budget is clear and the amount requested specifically outlined. You should also be prepared to make a presentation to the board of directors if necessary.

Funding application deadlines are as follows every year:

FALL: October 20
WINTER: December 1
SPRING: March 7
SUMMER: June 1 (extended to June 8th for 2012)

For other forms of assistance (logistics, campaign endorsement, outreach, publishing, etc.), please contact our Resources Coordinator for details. For information on funding procedures, please see our full Funding Policy HERE.
