Student Life Enhancement Fund

The Student Life Enhancement Fund (SLEF) provides seed capital and financial support for student-run and University-based service providers to expand their programming, infrastructure and/or operations. The fund is intended for initiatives that demonstrate a commitment to improving and enhancing student life. The Student Life Enhancement Fund is administered by the Student Services Advisory Committee (SSAC). The membership of the SSAC consists of representatives from the MSU and the University and is accountable to full-time undergraduate students for the governance of the Compulsory Ancillary Fee Protocol and the use of student fees levied by the institution.

Submissions for 2023–2024 are now closed. Stay tuned to vote on the ideas during the MSU presidential election, January 23 to 25, 2024. Voting will take place on this website during this period.

How the Fund Process Works

All ideas submitted will be reviewed by the SLEF committee. The committee will evaluate and select those ideas that best meet the criteria.  Students will have the opportunity to vote on the selected list of proposed projects during the MSU Presidential Election. Voting results will help determine the final projects that will be presented to the Student Services Advisory Committee in April for approval and implementation.
