We are pleased to offer the Equity Enhancement Fund to help promote initiatives that significantly contribute to the enhancement of equity and diversity at UBC. We invite proposals for one-time funding of equity initiatives of up to $25,000 per project. There are separate funds for the Vancouver and Okanagan campuses. This announcement relates to the Vancouver fund.
The Vancouver funds are allocated by the Acting Associate Vice President Equity and Inclusion, in consultation with the Provost’s Advisory Committee on Equity and Diversity. Proposals applying for funding up to $25,000 will be considered.
Any academic or administrative unit may apply for funding, with the endorsement of the head of unit. Student clubs and societies, unions and associations, and other faculty and staff groups are also invited to submit proposals through their respective senior leadership.
The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2015, with funding being allocated in May 2015 for the financial year 2015-16.
Guidelines and requirements are available at equity.ubc.ca/equity-enhancement-fund.

In 2014, a total of $83,254 was approved for 13 initiatives on the Okanagan and Vancouver campuses. Learn more about the 2014 Equity Enhancement Fund recipients.
We look forward to the positive contributions these projects will bring to UBC. Please distribute widely within your faculty/ departments as appropriate.
