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, $500,000 is available for expenditure from the Fund, consisting of two streams:
Stream 1: $300,000 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: $200,000 is available for expenditure from the Fund for large strategic initiatives that Department Heads previously identified as priorities for their units, such as classroom and teaching laboratory upgrades. The Endowment Committee will take this into consideration when evaluating Stream 2 proposals. Anyone considering submitting an application should first consult with their Department Head to discuss unit priorities. A detailed budget and quotes from Physical Plant are required.
