The LazSoc Competition Subsidy
The Lazaridis Society recognizes that attending cases or competitions at another University or in a different city carries a financial burden. We want to support our members who would like to represent Laurier at cases and competitions outside of our campus community. Students can request for expenses related to competing in cases and competitions to be subsidized through the applications below.
LazSoc Conference & Competition Subsidy Applications
LazSoc may subsidize up to 50% of the fees up to $500 for a given conference or competition. Attendee will be responsible for any costs above and beyond the subsidy provided by LazSoc. If the attendee has received any other money from any other organizations, LazSoc may only subsidize up to 50% of the fees up to $500 for the above conference or competition. The maximum subsidy per student is $500 per fiscal year (May 2020 - April 2021). For any students attending international conferences, all dollar amounts are required to be recorded in Canadian dollars.
LazSoc will not cover food and beverage costs of any kind as well as any additional accommodation costs beyond the room itself. LazSoc will subsidize 50% of applicable transportation costs, excluding gasoline which is subsidized at 15¢/km.
Subsidy request forms may not necessarily be approved for funding if LazSoc deems an event does not provide value to Lazaridis Students' and the school community.
While attending the above noted conference or competition, you must conduct yourself in a respectable and appropriate manner that reflects positively on the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics and Wilfrid Laurier University.
