Faculty and Staff

Submit your proposal for funding from SFU’s Community Engagement Initiative

December 12, 2016

Do you have an innovative project or idea that could create or deepen mutually beneficial partnerships with SFU’s communities?

If so, you could receive up to $10,000 in support from SFU’s Community Engagement Initiative. The total amount available for 2016-17 is $100,000.  

SFU’s Office of Community Engagement invites proposals from faculty and staff for projects that improve and expand SFU’s ability to engage with its communities through student experiential learning, knowledge mobilization, or research. The deadline is Friday, Dec. 16.

The initiative will support the following types of activities:

  • Seed funding for new collaborative community engagement projects and programs;
  • Seed funding to develop programs or capabilities to support SFU’s reach to its communities; and
  • One-time costs to expand ongoing initiatives to other campuses or communities, and to secure longer-term funding for activities.

Community is defined broadly and can include non-profit organizations, industry associations, NGOs, local First Nations, and provincial and federal government departments.
