The Academic Excellence Fund (AEF) supports York University graduate students undertaking research and scholarly activities. Please note the following when applying for AEF:

Student Application Deadlines: there are three deadlines each year: October 30, February 28 and June 30. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Documentation: AEF enables students to access funds prior to incurring eligible expenses. Itemized receipts are normally not required to be submitted; however, students must retain all receipts and supporting documentation for one year for audit purposes.
Only one application per application cycle is accepted. Students wishing to apply under multiple categories must complete all categories in one submission. Only the most recent submission will be reviewed, and previous entries will not be considered.
• Please review the AEF guidelines for detailed instructions.
