special project grant
A Special Project Grant or “SPG” is a grant given to undergraduate Fine Arts students at Concordia University (be they in a specialization, major, or minor within the Fine Arts) to support both individual and group projects. FASA’s mandate for the Special Project Grants is to support projects that will reach a wide number of students at Concordia, particularly those within the Fine Arts community. We look to fund a diverse range of projects that will allow our membership to be involved either as participants or audience members.

Each year, a portion of FASA’s fee-levy is dedicated directly to Special Project Grants. This amount varies from year to year and is based on the number of students enrolled in Fine Arts programs and how many credits they are taking. The amount received is split into two equal parts and distributed twice a year, during both the Fall and Winter semesters.

Any undergraduate student enrolled in a Fine Arts course is eligible to receive one Special Project Grant per academic year.
