CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Refugee Hub Spotlight Grants

A core tenet of the Refugee Hub’s mission is to foster a vibrant uOttawa community around refugee law, policy and protection. To this end, our Spotlight Grants aim to highlight and support the work that leaders in our community are undertaking on refugee-related issues. Spotlight Grants contribute to the impact and profile of grantees’ initiatives by providing a modest financial contribution and communications support.

Eligibility: All uOttawa Faculty members and graduate students are encouraged to apply.  Proposals may be for one-off events or ongoing initiatives, and preference may be given to initiatives with a public-facing component (e.g. public legal education, community outreach, or other public benefit).

Each grant includes:

  • Financial support in the amount of up to $1500 to cover approved costs; and
  • Communications support, including dissemination and promotions (e.g. Refugee Hub social media, day-of social media promotions, etc…)
