The 2023/24 Community-University Engagement Support (CUES) Fund is open! Get up to $25,000 to support community-university partnerships that benefit communities across the province and advance collaborative research, teaching and learning. Interested applicants are invited to submit a Notice of Intent by September 22, 2023. 

 Paid directly to community partners, CUES funding removes financial barriers and prioritizes reciprocal, inclusive engagement so all communities — especially those that have been and continue to be underserved, marginalized or excluded — can benefit. This year, we have a total of $675,000 to fund up to 27 community-university projects. 

 We invite applicants looking to develop new or existing community-university relationships and especially welcome applications for collaborative projects that advance: 

  • Equity, diversity, and inclusion  
  • Indigenous engagement and reconciliation  
  • Health innovation and community wellbeing  
  • Sustainability and climate action  
  • Teaching, learning and research excellence 

 The fund is open to BC-based community partners and UBC students, faculty, and staff. 

 The CUES fund is jointly administered by UBC Community Engagement and the Office of the Vice-President, Research and Innovation
