Applications Open for the 2019 Innovative Projects Fund

Dear Campus Colleagues,

Applications for the Innovative Projects Fund are now open. The Innovative Projects Fund, funded by the VP Students Office and coordinated by the AMS, began in 1996 to support the development of programs, projects, and ideas that enrich and enhance the University for students. This fund is unique in providing funds directly to students to help them creatively enhance their UBC experience.

Applications are accepted from students, staff, and faculty at the University for a maximum of $3,500 per year. Students are asked to submit applications via the AMS Clubhouse system, and Faculty and Staff without Clubhouse access are welcome to submit applications (in PDF format) via email to The deadline for applications is Friday, February 22nd, 2019.

Projects should be innovative in approach, provide benefit to a significant number of students, be visible within the campus community, and involve students in the creation or co-creation of the initiative in a significant and meaningful way. Recently funded projects include a networking event at the African Business Forum through the UBC African Business Club, development of a solar car through UBC Solar, and support for the first prototypes of the Tree Canopy Bus Shelters in the redeveloped UBC bus exchange.
