In 2016-2017, each option and cohort at OISE will receive funding from the STU.

How the money is spent is up to the discretion of each option and cohort. However, it is strongly encouraged that the money be spent on a social engagement for the option or cohort - as that is what it has been set aside for.

All transactions must be approved either the STU Treasurer or the STU President.  

It is up to a class rep from each option or cohort to fill out the form, and slip it under the door of the OISE STU office on the 5th floor. It will be reviewed and returned to you in a timely manner.

Questions or concerns regarding this process can be directed to the Treasurer or President via email.

Once the spending has been approved by the STU, all receipts must be submitted to the Treasurer for reimbursement.  Monies will be reimbursed via cheque and will not exceed the amount allotted for each option or cohort.

*For reimbursement purposes, please try to limit the spending to one or two people per option or cohort.
