Office of the Rector Equity Partnership Grant

Purpose and Background

In the Summer of 2020 the Office of the Rector committed to increasing its capacity to serve and aid Queer, Transgender, Black, Indigenous, and People of Colour (QTBIPOC) and accessibility communities. Following discussions with groups across campus, student government, and administration, the Office of the Rector Equity Partnership Grant was created. The purpose of this grant is to provide members of the Queen's community who have an idea for an innovative program that enriches equity for our QTBIPOC students, faculty, and staff. 


To be eligible to apply for a grant, the following criteria must be fulfilled:

  • The applicant initiative must have a stated commitment to anti-oppression and anti-discrimination within its mandate.
  • The applicant organization must be non-profit in the sense that proceeds or fees from the organization’s activities are not returned to the Executive or members of the applicant organization but are fully invested and reinvested in its programs and operations.
  • Applicants with demonstrated financial need (e.g. without other funding sources) will be given preference.


Applications now closed for the 2020 Period. If you have any further queries or concerns you can contact The Office of the Rector.
