2022 Endowment Fund call for proposals now open
The Endowment Fund Committee of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences is once again seeking proposals from students, alumni, and academic and support staff of the Faculty for special projects requiring funding.
The Endowment Fund, generously supported by students, alumni, staff and friends of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences, aims to promote excellence in the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences through support for a wide variety of worthy projects and programs consistent with the academic goals of the Faculty. The interest generated by this fund is used to provide teaching and other resources for the Faculty.
This year, $425,000 is available for expenditure from the Fund, consisting of two streams:
Stream 1: $175,000 is available to fund a variety of projects, from teaching equipment/projects to student competitions and field trips. The fund has also been allocated for visiting scientists and lecturers, conferences and workshops, and library acquisitions.
Stream 2: $250,000 is available for expenditure from the fund for infrastructure upgrades and renewal projects in the Faculty. Priority will be given to projects that are consistent with the academic goals of the Faculty and impact the larger body of students (including but not limited to lab/teaching space upgrades). Anyone considering applying should first consult with their Department Head to discuss unit priorities. Proposals must follow the general rules of the Endowment Fund competition and projects must be achievable by March 31, 2023. A detailed budget and quotes are required.
Deadline (Stream 1 & 2): Monday, March 7, 2022 at 12 Noon
