Dear UBC Community Members,
Do you have a great idea for celebrating UBC’s 100th anniversary? This is a reminder to apply for funding for it by December 15, 2014.
Launched in September, the Centennial Initiatives Fund will support activities that celebrate UBC’s impact on the world as it enters its second century and highlights the contributions of our alumni, students, faculty and staff. We are pleased to accept proposals from students, faculty, staff and alumni for one-time funding of unit-based Centennial initiatives of up to $10,000 per project until December 15, 2014.
The application guidelines and template are available at http://vpdevelopmentalumni.ubc.ca/call-for-proposals-CIF/. If you have any questions about the Fund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is December 15, 2014 with funding being allocated in January 2015 and released for the Centennial year September 2015 – June 2016.
Please note that your unit does not have to be 100 years old to participate! Any academic or administrative unit may apply for funding, with the endorsement of the head of unit. Other UBC communities such as alumni, students, emeriti and university neighbourhood groups are also invited to submit proposals through their respective senior leadership.
With thanks to all who have already submitted their enquiries and proposals. We look forward to an exciting Centennial year!
