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.
