Inclusive Initiatives Fund

UBC’s Inclusive Initiatives Fund (IIF) provides low-barrier access to funds for students working to build a more inclusive UBC.

Funding Program Update
March 18, 2022

Thank you for your interest in the IIF.

Following learnings and the feedback received from the initial pilot of the fund, we identified opportunities to improve the fund operationalization, application, and evaluation processes. As a result we are temporarily pausing the intake of new applications in order to make enhancements to the IIF and ensure we can better process applications in line with student and service expectations. We will re-open the fund for submissions in August of 2022.

If you applied to the IIF prior to March 18th, we apologize for any delays and will be in touch with you shortly about the results of your application and next steps.

We are committed to supporting student leadership, involvement, and engagement in advancing inclusion at UBC and the IIF remains a critical component of putting those commitments into action.

If you have additional questions, please contact us at


Launched in 2021, the IIF supports diverse student-led projects that seek to create a positive impact on student experiences and advance change at UBC Vancouver and UBC Okanagan. Eligible projects will seek to advance equity, diversity, and inclusion, including through social justice, decolonization, and anti-racism efforts.

$100,000 has been allocated to support student initiatives in 2021 and 2022.

Eligibility Criteria

We are updating eligibility criteria for August 2022.
