Community Wellbeing Grants
Looking to support the health and wellbeing of our UCSF Community? Apply for a UCSF Community Wellbeing grant!
The UCSF Wellbeing Committee led by Wellness and Community is requesting proposals for projects that will support creating a culture of wellbeing at UCSF.
We are looking for project leads with proposals that promote health and wellbeing among one or more of our pillars of wellness: emotional, physical, social, financial, career, environmental, and spiritual. Wellness and Community will provide the funding and minimal project guidance while the applicant will serve as the project lead if they are chosen. All projects must be completed by June 30, 2022.
We will be particularly interested in projects that can help us make strides towards the following areas:
- Connecting to our pillars of wellness
- Creating a culture of wellness and supporting wellbeing at UCSF
- Emphasizing of UCSF PRIDE values
- Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at UCSF in a substantial and meaningful way
We encourage all submissions and ideas that promote these areas. Given the dynamic situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, modifications may be needed at the time of project implementation, but do not let current restrictions impact submission ideas.
How to Apply
The application period is September 13 – September 30, 2021.
All applications are due by Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 11:59pm PST
If applicants are successful, they will be asked for a more detailed proposal, budget, and/or additional support materials. We hope to notify successful applicants of our interest by November 1, 2021.
Applications will be evaluated using this rubric.
The maximum amount of discretionary allocations for Community Wellbeing Grants in the 2021-2022 fiscal year is $60,000. When submitting funding requests, please consider this maximum amount and keep in mind that the Wellbeing Committee funds multiple proposals and not just one. Unless there are overwhelmingly compelling reasons to do so, requests that take up a majority or all of the available Community Wellbeing Grant funds are unlikely to be included in the final funding allocation or may be considered for partial funding.
Goods and services requested in your proposal must abide by the Conflict of Interest Code.
