This fund provides the opportunity for student groups to apply for financial support in order to run new and innovative events that respond directly to the emerging needs of our entering student population. Smaller groups with limited budgets can also have access to seed money to run events. Larger groups are encouraged to offer more innovative activities that meet a broader range of needs. You are encouraged to apply for funding that will allow you to run the best possible version of your event. In 2012, individual applicants were awarded between $50 and $10,000.
The principles for making decisions about which programs are to be supported by the Innovation Fund shall include:
a) New or creative ideas;
b) Endeavours that increase the participation of student organizations or populations that have traditionally not been involved in Orientation Week, or that have only been marginally involved;
c) Initiatives that are collaborative in nature;
d) Programs that address the transition needs of incoming students, with priority given to those that address a previously unmet need; and
e) Other priorities as determined by consensus at OWAC.
