Changemaking Mini-Grants Program

Overview and purpose

Funded by the Georgian College Students’ Association (GCSA), the Changemaking Mini-Grants Program (CCMG) is designed to:

  • spark collaboration between students, staff and faculty by providing funding and resources to develop innovative changemaking projects and activities
  • deepen student learning by generating new changemaking opportunities that are focused on complementing the learning that occurs both inside and outside the classroom
  • build community by establishing new and strengthening existing on-campus networks and off-campus partnerships

Defining changemaking learning

For the purposes of this grant, changemaking learning is defined as learning that occurs outside of the traditional classroom. This learning can take place in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to:

  • involvement in student organizations and leadership positions
  • engagement with civic, community service and service-learning opportunities
  • participation in activities and programs that promote health and wellness
  • attendance at lectures and workshops
  • involvement in cultural and social enrichment events; and other interactions between members of the Georgian College community and beyond
