Partnerships Program

WISEatlantic Partnerships Program

The WISEatlantic Partnerships Program is an opportunity for community organizations in Atlantic Canada to apply for small one-year sponsorships for new activities and/or projects that promote the outreach, recruitment, and retention for girls, young women, and industry professionals in science, technology, engineering or math (STEM). The intention of the funding is to help establish or expand programs, and it is expected that projects have a plan for continuation after WISEatlantic Partnerships Program funding ends. Projects will only be funded once. Submissions in subsequent years must be fundamentally different from previously funded projects. Organizations may apply for a 1 year sponsorship of up to $3000 for new projects. The overall funding pool is limited, so it is anticipated that we may not be able to fund all projects, or may not be able to fund projects at the requested level. If receiving less funding than you applied for will cause the project to be cancelled or significantly modified, please include details in your proposal.

Eligibility

To be eligible to receive funds, an organization must either be a non-profit organization with a registration number that is recognized in the Atlantic region, an educational institution, or have an affiliation with either a non-profit group or educational institution. We are unable to transfer funds to individuals or organizations that do not meet these guidelines. Please note that the WISEatlantic Partnerships Program generally supports programs with a broad impact. Funding for teams, participation in conferences, and other individual pursuits is not permissible.
