Don Wright Faculty of Music Undergraduate Gift Fund

The Don Wright Faculty of Music Undergraduate Gift Fund was established in 1993, and is replenished annually by students in the form of a $100.00 refundable levy, included in each student’s tuition fee. These funds have enabled the Faculty of Music to create a reserve of money, entitled the Don Wright Faculty of Music Undergraduate Gift Fund. This reserve is used to enhance the educational experience of students within the faculty by providing funding for equipment and projects that would otherwise be impossible.

The Gift Fund Committee is comprised of the Don Wright Faculty of Music Students' Council President (Committee Chair), up to seven undergraduate Music students, a professor from the Don Wright Faculty of Music, and the Dean of Music. The Committee meets twice per academic year to review submitted applications to the Gift Fund – during the Fall term (Round One), and the Winter term (Round Two). 


Application Information

Gift Fund Round Two is now closed. The deadline to apply for Round Two was Monday, February 28, 2022 at 3:30pm.

Please refer to the Gift Fund Application Guidelines for complete information. Printed applications are not accepted.

Please note: Once approved, projects must be completed within two years of the approval date. If not completed, funds will be reverted back into the reserve. The Committee Chair or Dean’s Office must be notified of the progress and delays of all  projects.
