Applications welcome for funding opportunities

Members of the university community are welcome to submit proposals for two separate funds.

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.

The Conference Fund provides funding for conferences, workshops or seminars that are hosted or co-hosted by Memorial University. 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.

The deadline for applications to both funds is Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Please contact your unit’s grants facilitator (or, if the unit has no grants facilitator, the person with signing authority for your unit) to confirm if there are earlier, internal deadlines. These internal deadlines must be factored into the timing of the development and submission of these applications.

For more information, please see the following Gazette news story.
