Student Initiative Funding

U of T Eco Challenge Team 2014

Every year, the University of Toronto Engineering Alumni Network (EAN) grants funding to various engineering student clubs ranging from stress release to robotics and from the orchestra to iron sports. Thanks to generous donations from alumni, students, faculty, staff, parents and friends of the Faculty, the Skule™ Fund for Education is able to continually enhance the student experience at U of T Engineering.

The sponsorship of student clubs leaves a direct and lasting impact — students are able to grow outside of the classroom through professional development and networking opportunities. Participation in co-curricular and extra-curricular clubs also helps to build soft skills, interests and relationships that last long after graduation.
