Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund and Conference Fund calls for proposals now open

Applications are now being accepted for the Vice-Presidents Council Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund and Conference Fund.

The Cross-Campus Initiatives Fund is meant to encourage and build 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 at www.mun.ca/vpacademic/ccfi/.  Inquiries can be directed to the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) at 709-864-8246 or vpacad@mun.ca.

The Conference Fund provides support for conferences, workshops or seminars that are hosted or co-hosted by Memorial University. 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 at www.mun.ca/research/funding/conference/.  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.

Applications for the funds will be accepted until Monday, Feb. 15.
