About VIPIRG Grants Program
The purpose of the VIPIRG Grants Program for Collectives is to support grassroots action-based projects at UVic and in the greater Victoria community.
The Grants Program offers groups and collectives a funded opportunity to create positive change in the community, through events, campaigns, actions, research or education in social justice. The projects may include research papers, events, workshops, publications, multi-media presentations, performances or other means of sharing and displaying the work of the grant recipients. Projects should increase knowledge, awareness, and dialogue on a given topic, with a particular emphasis on poverty.
VIPIRG is specifically interested in projects that might help us fill a gap in topics that are not being significantly covered at this time through local organizing or research. Preference may be given to proposals that contribute to ongoing campaigns and relate to VIPIRG’s current priorities..
The Grants Committee is made up of Coordinating Collective members and staff members. Please note that the grants program is suspended until further notice. Please check back in the spring.
