    The Graduate Community Building Fund provides financial support of up to $5,000 on a competitive basis, towards special projects meeting the criteria listed below. These funds are intended to build an intellectual community within graduate programs, by bringing together students and faculty for events, lectures, symposia, etc. Criteria include:

    • Potential for community building for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty members
    • Impact on students and faculty
    • Level of student involvement
    • How does your project align with the university's Strategic Directions?
    • How will the project benefit your graduate students?
    • How will the project benefit the graduate community?

    These criteria are not meant to be exhaustive, but instead to highlight key elements of funding requests. Interaction outside of the formal academic structures is key; project funds will serve as a means to fill an intellectual gap in the graduate student experience and bring graduate students and faculty members closer together. Although projects are to be student-driven, support from a Graduate Program Director, Departmental Chair, or Research Centre Director is essential.

    Projects that form part of a student’s required curriculum or program will not be considered.
