SOGI UBC Research to Practice Microgrant Program 2022!
We are inviting current undergraduate and graduate students at Canadian post-secondary institutions (e.g., colleges and universities) across all faculties/programs to submit proposals for research-based resources for PK-12 educators related to gender and sexuality. Specifically, we invite students engaged in scholarly projects related to gender and sexuality to design educational tools or resources for PK-12 teachers that draw from that scholarship.
Three (3) winners will be selected by mid-February 2022 and will have until mid-May 2022 to complete the first draft of their project. They will be awarded up to $3,000 CAD and will present their work to a small panel of teachers and scholars with expertise in SOGI education who will provide feedback on the resources at a one-day virtual conference in late May or June of 2022 (final date TBD).
Proposals are due on January 31, 2022, by 5 PM PDT. All information regarding application formatting and key criteria can be found on our website here.
