Equity Seed Fund Application - 2017/18
Equity Seed Fund by the OCAD Student Union that will give voice and support to OCAD U’s growing population of diverse students. For the purpose of this project, “Diverse student” refers to: students who self-identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or Person of Colour (BIPOC), and/or LGBTQ2S+, and/or immigrant/refugee and/or persons with mental health and/or physical health issues. We are funding three projects with $700 each.

Project Requirements:
1) Projects must engage and/or be open to the participation and contributions of the entire target demographic of students this project is targeted to, or the entire student body, in the process or the final product of the project.

2) Projects must have a launching/closing event at the beginning or end of the project, the entire community of students this project is caterer to, or the entire student body. The SU will help promote all projects.

3) All project recipients must submit a Final Report that will serve as the summary and evaluation of their project. Submission of the report will ensure the SU receives all information needed to assess the success of your project. This report will also help the SU identify the needs and wants of our student body in order to better serve them from a diverse and equitable perspective. The report will touch upon the following topics: process, research, goals and the fulfillment of those goals, execution, outcome, financial breakdown.

4)Coursework will not be considered eligible for funding.
