UBC is committed to deepening the relevance and public impact of its research and education, supporting the translation of research into action and strengthening university engagement and collaboration with local communities, particularly those historically underserved, marginalized and excluded.
The Community-University Engagement Support (CUES) fund is designed to foster and support community-university engagements with diverse communities by offsetting non-research related costs for community partners collaborating with or seeking to collaborate with UBC partners on research, teaching or learning projects.
A total of $500,000 is available for this competition. Funds will be awarded directly to community partners and are intended to support new or established UBC-community partnerships via two funding streams:
CUES Funds for Exploring New Community-University Partnerships
- Up to $15,000 per project (min. $7,500)
CUES exploration funds cover non-research costs for community and university partners who are building new relationships to promote diverse perspectives and approaches while accomplishing shared goals. These funds are specifically designed to help new and innovative partnerships get off the ground by ensuring partners have the necessary time and resources to build trust, define shared interests, identify knowledge gaps and shared goals and to design collaborative research, teaching or learning projects.
CUES Funds for Sustaining Community-University Partnerships
- Up to $30,000 per project (min. $15,000)
Many community-university partners are currently engaged in high quality collaborative research, teaching and learning projects. In recognition of the work of community partners, CUES funds for sustaining community-university partnerships cover non-research costs for your partnership and can help to fill the small resource gaps that may be experienced by community partners who are engaged with UBC. In doing so, CUES funds for sustaining partnerships can be used to keep a partnership afloat, activate the results of previous collaboration and drive the work to have more direct impacts in partnership with communities.
