The Equity Enhancement Fund supports community-based initiatives that enhance equity, diversity, inclusion, and intercultural understanding at UBC. Proposals should demonstrate benefits to the representation or experiences of historically disadvantaged groups within the UBC community.
All student groups, academic or administrative units are invited to apply. Applications must be endorsed by a Head of Unit or the senior official of an organization, to ensure funds are managed responsibly.
Applications are accepted for small and large projects (max $25,000), although larger requests may only receive partial funding. Preference is given to proposals that demonstrate partnerships with some matching financial contributions and are for projects that have the potential to be self-sustaining. Separate funding is available for the Okanagan and Vancouver campus.
Application deadline is February 28, 2017. Learn more.
