In honour of Canada’s 150th anniversary, the U of T Scarborough Canada150 Fund promotes greater public engagement with the University by supporting unique, one-time projects that reflect on the past, present and future of our campus; that offer critical reflection on Canadian history; and that demonstrate U of T Scarborough’s role in the Canada that is becoming. In the spirit of truth and reconciliation, special consideration is given to proposals that address Indigenous concerns.
Explore, challenge or celebrate the connection between the University and Canada’s past, present and future, linked to the University’s priorities: urban engagement, international partnerships or re-imagining undergraduate education.
Supporting appointed faculty and academic librarians, this fund provides a maximum of $2,500, matched by the division or academic unit hosting an event that reflects on Canada’s history. Applications closed on February 29, 2016.
There are a number of other funding opportunities available as part of the Canada150 celebrations through the Canada Council for the Arts, the department of Canadian Heritage, Community Foundations of Canada, Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and the Rick Hansen Foundation.
