Partnerships & Funding
Through our small grant funds, the School of Cities supports activities at the University of Toronto focused on cities. In light of COVID-19, the following guidelines will apply to small grant funds applications for initiatives taking place between April 1- December 31, 2020.
At this time, we encourage small grant fund applications that support activities in which information and knowledge are shared virtually. This can include, for example, reports, short videos, online seminars, and social media campaigns. Funds can be used towards the following eligible expenses: research assistants, professional services (e.g. graphic design, writing), or for technology support. Funds may not be used for honoraria. Questions about funding should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
From April 1 – December 31, 2020, and through the Outreach & Engagement Small Grant Funds, the School of Cities will support a range of proposals focused on cities, including but not limited to, those connected to COVID-19.
These grant funds are open to faculty, staff and student groups from all three campuses. Partnerships with external organizations and communities are welcome, though the application must be submitted by a University of Toronto faculty, staff or student group.
