Purpose

Health and Human Services (HHS) is interested in encouraging student participation in the life of the Faculty and the University. To that end a small internal grant fund provides grants for a range of initiatives planned and initiated by students that will enhance the quality of the student learning experience, increase understanding of the realm of health and human service delivery, and encourage inter-professional interaction amongst students. The initiative will be an opportunity to engage in enriched learning experiences and provide an opportunity for student(s) to engage in knowledge sharing in other teaching/learning forums.

Applications for support to individuals and groups of students in HHS will be accepted in the Dean's office on the 15th of each month between October and March for activities occurring in the following month. There are two categories of activity: a) activity grants to support student focused and organized events (max. $1500); and b) travel grants provide funding for students to present at academic or professional conferences (Max $800 per individual). There is an annual maximum for this fund which may limit the number of awards and continuation of the fund is subject to availability of funds.
