Student Initiative

The Mental Health and Wellness Student Initiative Fund is a grant that is administered by the Health Education and Promotion department within the Student Success Centre, Division of Students.

In recognizing that wellness is a necessary pre-condition to learning and working, York University has developed this new Fund. It aims to support innovative, student-led initiatives that promote a healthy, inclusive and supportive environment that fosters mental health and well-being among members of the York student community.

A total of $1000.00 is available to each of 5 registered student clubs at York University.

How is the funding allocated?

Decisions related to allocating funding are determined by an independent committee who will score each proposal based on the rubric found in the downloadable Mental Health and Wellness Student Initiative guide. The clubs with the highest overall scores will be awarded funding.
