 2022- R3 Fall/Winter Call for Proposals for CEWIL’s Innovation Hub (iHub)

After a fruitful first year of the CEWIL’s iHub, we are pleased to announce the next call for project proposals for Fall 2022 and/or Winter 2023 WIL experiences! The CEWIL iHub is funded in part by the Government of Canada’s Innovative Work-Integrated Learning Initiative (I-WIL).  CEWIL’s mission is to build the capacity to develop future-ready students through quality work-integrated learning. Over our almost 50 years of operations, we have been committed to quality WIL. We are excited to continue this initiative to bring innovation and expanded access to WIL for students across the country. 

As you know, the CEWIL iHub will operate as a centre of expertise that provides grant-based funding to enable and promote curricular work-integrated learning (WIL). This call for proposals seeks to fund innovative WIL experiences that begin and end between September 2022 and April 2023. The goals of the CEWIL iHub remain the same whereby we aim to increase access and remove barriers to WIL experiences for students. Through our iHub funded projects, a minimum of 40% of the participants will be from equity deserving groups.

We are now formally receiving applications on our platform GoodGrants. We would also like to encourage you to review the application guide, updated FAQs and evaluation rubric for important updated information regarding funding.

As in the previous rounds, we also invite you to join us in the upcoming regional open office hours or communicate with us directly at ihub@cewilcanada.ca. Please see our website for regional office hours.

Finally, CEWIL is sharing this information with you as part of the greater WIL community and our hope is that you will once again share it widely with your colleagues within your organization (WIL professionals, faculty, Service-Learning professionals, Entrepreneurship Hubs, etc.).

Please visit our website for more information, including the applicant guide, FAQs and budget template. A reminder that proposals are accepted starting now until June 7, 2022 at 11:59 PM EDT. We look forward to hearing from you and receiving your innovative WIL project submissions!

We thank you for joining our journey to ensure quality, innovative WIL experiences for Canadian students.
