New round

Applications accepted for conference and cross-campus funding

Campus and Community

By Jennifer Batten

Applications are now being accepted for the following funding opportunities:

Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund

The Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund builds on existing strategic relationships between Memorial’s campuses.

The fund annually allocates a total of $40,000 over three calls as one-time support for travel for new initiatives that are clearly and demonstrably strategic for the units, falling outside the scope of regular business. Travel must be in accordance with Memorial’s travel policy. The terms of reference for this fund were amended this fall and can be found here.

More details on the fund, including guidelines for proposals are available here. Inquiries can be directed to the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) at 709-864-8246 or via email.

Conference Fund

The Conference Fund provides funding to off-set the cost of organizing and hosting conferences, workshops or seminars. Please note, the fund does not provide financial support for employees to travel to such events.

The fund allocates a total of $50,000 annually over three calls, providing one-time support of regular conferences, as opposed to large-scale events.

Terms of reference and a template for submissions are available here. Inquiries can be directed to the Office of the Vice-President (Research) at 709-864-3650 or via email.

Deadline approaching

Those interested in applying to either fund have until Monday, October 15.

The portfolios of the Vice-President (Research), Vice-President (Academic), Vice-President (Marine Institute) and Vice-President (Grenfell) support both funds.

A call for applications to both funds is issued three times per academic year (October, February and June).
