This fund supports collaborative projects and initiatives that build inclusiveness and diverse forms of community engagement.

Commitments to social justice, equity, and inclusion should form the core principles of successful Global & Community Engagement collaborative projects. We welcome applications for up to $5000 per project from LA&PS faculty members (YUFA and CUPE) and registered York student groups.
