- Canadian institutions including universities, boards of education and other centres of education in Canada
- Other levels of government including Indigenous, provinces, territories and municipalities, and their agencies; and
- First Nations, Métis and Inuit not-for-profit organizations
Individuals, for-profit groups and federal Crown corporations are ineligible for contribution funding under SUAP. These ineligible entities can be included as project partners on the application form of eligible applicants.
