Social Action Fund

Social Action Fund

Centennial College is a leader in providing an educational experience that empowers students to become agents of social change on local and international levels. Centennial values and embraces diversity, equity and inclusion as fundamental to our mission to educate students for career success within a context of global citizenship and social justice (Statement of Diversity). 

What is the Social Action Fund?

The purpose of Social Action Fund (SAF) is to fulfil the College’s commitment to addressing the "historical and persistent inequities and barriers to equitable participation [that] exist and are well documented in society and within the College" (Statement of Diversity). The SAF supports sustainable, tangible and goal-oriented social justice projects with measurable outcomes that encourage more equitable practices within the institution and/or the larger community, foster global citizenship and challenge systems of oppression. The SAF is designed to infuse equity and diversity into every aspect of the College’s work and operations by funding proposals for projects that address issues of equity and diversity, build capacity among College members and that facilitate movement from social analysis to civic action within the College or the broader community. 

How to apply

The Social Action Fund is closed for the 2020/2021 academic year.
