Proposals sought for 2023 Endowment Fund projects
The Endowment Fund Comittee of the Faculty of Agricultural and Food Sciences is once again seeking proposals from students, alumni, academics 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 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.
The Endowment Fund Committee allocates funds through two streams:
Stream 1 provides funds for 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 provides funds for large 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 or teaching space upgrades.
Submissions must follow the updated Application Guidelines and all projects must be achievable by March 31, 2024.
