As your Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Committee (EDIC), we want to help you shape a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion here at TRIUMF. Applications are now open for the TRIUMF Community Fund.
The TRIUMF Community Fund is an EDIC initiative designed to help us put our Values of Equity & Inclusion into practice. Successful applicants will be given a one-time allocation of funds to support community-led projects/initiatives that foster a culture of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Projects/initiatives that could be supported by the fund include:
A lunch and learn about inclusive language
A guest speaker on EDI
The Community Fund will not cover:
Events hosted by outside organizations
Projects/initiatives that do not support equity, diversity, and inclusion
Clear identification of the participants (i.e. who the project/initiative is for?)
Clear description of the proposed project/initiative and identification of how it would increase visibility, understanding, support, and pride for our diverse TRIUMF community, and for our values of Equity & Inclusion
Explanation of how this project/initiative is expected to positively impact the group and the broader TRIUMF community
Clear description of what success looks like for this project/initiative and how it will be assessed
Viable description of how this project/initiative can be sustained moving forward
Successful applicants will receive a one-time allocation of funds
Funds must be used within a six (6) month period
The amount awarded will depend on the number of approved projects per quarter
We encourage you to seek out additional funding partners to help sustain your project
Download and fill out the application form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to refer to our Selection Criteria when writing your application to ensure you are including all the necessary information.
Anyone who identifies as a member of the TRIUMF community is welcome to apply.
Applications are accepted year-round; however, we recommend that you submit your applications one quarter before your plan to host your event/initiate your project. This ensures that we have ample time to review your application.
Yes, you can still apply for the Community Fund! While we cannot guarantee that it will be approved before your event, we’ll do our best to review your application as soon as possible.
You can apply as many times as you like, just keep in mind that EDIC will award funding on a needs basis. So, if you’ve already had one or two ideas funded already, we may look to other applicants to make sure everyone has an opportunity to participate.
Congratulations! A member of EDIC will reach out to you to confirm your acceptance and go over some of our terms with you.
All is not lost! You are welcome to revise your application and reapply. You can also reach out to EDIC if you’d like some help during your revision.
Please let us know ASAP if you no longer wish to use the Community Fund for your project.
You will be reimbursed the previously-agreed upon amount from the fund. Submit your receipts to EDIC for reimbursement. Please note that any expenses beyond what was agreed upon will not be reimbursed.
If you’d like to host the same event again next year, you will need to submit another application to EDIC for review. The Community Fund offers a one-time allocation of funding, which means that repeat events are not guaranteed approval.
