Announcing The 3nd Annual 

Resilience and Compassion Initiative Seed Grants!

For the second consecutive year in partnership with the Campus Sustainability Fund, the UW Resilience Lab awards seed grants to support resilience and compassion building initiatives that foster connection and community. These small grants support impactful activities, programs, projects, and/or applied research that align with the goals of UW Resilience and Compassion Initiatives:

  • To cultivate kindness, compassion, and gratitude toward each other and ourselves.
  • To engage hardships, setbacks and failures with compassion and vulnerability, and as rich opportunities for learning and growth.
  • To foster connectedness, belonging and community.
  • To illuminate the connections between group or personal identities (cultural, racial, ethnic, gender, etc.) and the sustainability of the UW community and environment.

We acknowledge that COVID-19 has fundamentally altered our ability to interact with our friends, family and UW community. The emotional, physical and financial implications of the pandemic have touched each and every one of us in our community. In these difficult times with an uncertain future we invite you to join us in thinking creatively of how we as a community can create innovative approaches to foster resilience, sustainability and compassion for our Husky Community. The Seed Grant application is open April 15th - May 18th. Details about the grant process can be found at the following link: 2020 Seed Grant Application
