Call for proposals

Applications being accepted for cross-campus and conference funding

Campus and Community

By Jeff Green

The Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund and Conference Fund are now accepting applications.

Cross-Campus Initiatives

The Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund builds on existing strategic relationships between Memorial’s campuses: the St. John’s campus, the Marine Institute, Grenfell Campus, Harlow campus and the Labrador Institute.

The fund annually allocates $50,000 as one-time support for new initiatives that are clearly and demonstrably strategic for the units.

More information on the Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund, including terms of reference and guidelines for proposals, is available online. Inquiries can be directed to the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) at 709-864-8246 or vpacad@mun.ca.

Conference Fund

Meanwhile, the Conference Fund provides support for conferences, workshops or seminars that are hosted or co-hosted by Memorial.

The fund annually allocates $50,000 for one-time support of regular conferences, as opposed to large-scale events. More information on the Conference Fund, including terms of reference and a template for submissions, is available online. Inquiries can be directed to the Office of the Vice-President (Research) at 709-864-3650 or ebruce@mun.ca.

A call for applications to both funds is issued three times per academic year, in October, February and June. Both funds are supported by the portfolios of the Vice-President (Research), Vice-President (Academic), Vice-President (Marine Institute) and Vice-President (Grenfell).

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, June 15.
