This message is being sent directly to faculty and staff on behalf of Dr. Gavin Stuart, Dean, Faculty of Medicine and Vice Provost Health, UBC.
As some of you may know, staff and faculty are invited to submit a proposal for one-time funding of unit-based Centennial initiatives of up to $10,000 per project.
This is a tremendous opportunity to take advantage of centralized funding to support and enhance your unit initiatives, and celebrate the Faculty`s impact and contributions to improving health. I encourage broad participation across the Faculty and invite you to work directly with the our Development and Alumni team for guidance before submitting your proposal – their staff has tremendous experience in developing strong proposals and they would be pleased to provide input and support.
The application guidelines and template are available at: http://vpdevelopmentalumni.ubc.ca/call-for-proposals-CIF/.
For proposal support, please contact Marisa Moody, Alumni Relations Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 5, 2014. The deadline for submissions to the UBC Centennial Fund Committee is December 15, 2104.
The Faculty’s significant research enterprise, along with our province-wide educational programs, positions us well to be a leader in the Centennial celebrations. I look forward to joining you in these celebrations and highlighting our successes in the coming year.
Gavin C.E. Stuart, MD, FRCSC
Dean, Faculty of Medicine and Vice Provost Health, UBC
