Attention: Memorial students, faculty, and staff

Do you have an idea for a new, publicly engaged project?

The COVID-19 Quick Start Fund (CQS) for Public Engagement offers up to $2500 for projects, partnerships or initiatives that contribute to addressing immediate and long-term needs of COVID-19 and align with Memorial’s Public Engagement Framework.

Proposals will be assessed (monthly) based on the potential impact and timeliness of the proposed project in addressing and responding to COVID-19 and related challenges.  CQS will remain open until allocated funds are dispersed.

See the Fund Guide for more information. For additional program questions, please contact
