Every year the WSU spends approximately $60,000 on clubs and club grants. The reason we love doing it is because clubs, societies and rōpū Māori exemplify the best aspects of what it means to be a student. The people responsible for running these clubs are, without exception, people who devote their time and energy to serving the campus and creating campus culture.
There are two types of accessible grants for students. There are the Administration Grants that you get simply for completing your affiliation and the much more interesting type like the Contestable Grants. The Administration Grants come in three categories:
Clubs with up to 30 members receive a $50 payment
Clubs with between 31-100 members receive $100
Clubs with over 100 members receive $150
The Contestable Grants are significantly more interesting because they reward socialisation, innovation and imagination.
Clubs can be awarded up to $1000 in a calendar year provided that the grant will help to enhance the student experience on or off campus or serve the specific needs of a community.
