Connect to Community Grant

About the grant

The Connect to Community Grant (C2C) offers UBC students the opportunity to create and implement a meaningful project in partnership with a local not-for-profit community organization. Designed as an accessible introduction to the grants experience, the C2C grant strives to be a dynamic learning opportunity, challenging students to learn from the onset of the application through to project completion, without the fear of failing. We encourage students and community partners to test new ideas. Applicants can request funds between $200 and $1500 for their proposed project which must be completed by April 30th 2018. 

What the grant can fund

Examples of how you can use the funding include:

  • Build on a project that you were involved in as part of a course-based, Trek, or Reading Week placement or with a community organization you are already connected to

  • Develop and host workshops in the community based on community interests and needs

  • Support an existing community directed initiative, such as a communications campaign, program for a particular community group, or an event

  • Check out past grant winners for more ideas! 

Funds can cover the cost of materials, printing costs, space rentals, snacks, and other relevant project needs.
