The Professional Activities Fund

PAF helps fund activities that enhance the educational or professional development of UBC Engineers. You can apply for funding through PAF for things like conferences, student teams, career fairs, and more. You can apply for one-time expenditures, or multi-year projects! There are two sections of PAF – Travel & Conferences Fund and the Projects Fund. PAF covers activities UBC does not normally provide.

You can find a lot of information about PAF on their website. You can apply here, and review the guiding principles here. Make sure to be clear in your application with what you are applying for funding for. PAF deadlines are soon after the beginning of school in the Fall, so be sure to have your applications in on time.

If you have questions, you can either email the PAF Co-ordinator, or the VP Finance.
