Graduate Student Wellness Grant (GSWG)
PURPOSE OF GRANT
This grant is established to encourage graduate students and faculty to work collectively, across departments, to facilitate student mental health and well-being by developing innovative and sustainable initiatives to improve the overall graduate student life experience in the Faculty of Medicine.
ELIGIBILITY AND TERMS OF FUNDING
Any student registered in one of the 13 graduate departments in the Faculty of Medicine, regardless of degree program, are eligible to apply to this grant. The GLSE Graduate Student Wellness Grant offers up to $10,000 per project, for up to 3 years, to fund initiatives that improve the student experience with an emphasis on mental health and wellbeing. GLSE will consider projects that request the higher level of funding (i.e. $10,000) if the scope of the project warrants such support (e.g. 5 or more departments wish to collaborate on an initiative and request $10,000 over 3 years). The funds can be amortized over the duration of a project for up to 3 years. The project cannot be longer than 3 year. Collaboration with more than one graduate department is required and teams must include at least one faculty member. Please clearly state all the members (faculty and graduate students) involved in the submission.
DEADLINE AND HOW TO SUBMIT APPLICATION
A complete application, as described below, should be sent by email to Rachel Zulla, Graduate Affairs Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for this first round of funding is Friday May 1, 2020.
