Trainer/Facilitator Fund Application

This digital application gives Social Sciences undergraduate course instructors an easy way to apply for the Trainer/Facilitator Fund.

Thank you for preparing a submission to the Social Sciences Trainer/Facilitator Fund for undergraduate courses.

 

The goal of this funding is to help cover the costs of inviting, thanking, or paying trainers/facilitators brought in to help meet the following strategic goal:

  • to provide students with more opportunities to engage in hands-on learning or skill development

This has been identified as a high-priority goal by undergraduate students across the Faculty of Social Sciences.

 

This fund may be used in-course by instructors of social sciences undergraduate courses or by departmental leaders in an extra-curricular context. Successful Trainer/Facilitator Fund applications will clearly address at least one of the following eligibility categories:

  • Hands-on learning - experiences focused on practical techniques, tools and application
  • Skill development - practical experiences fostering transferable skills beyond core academic skills

To be eligible, students must actively participate in "doing" or "practicing" something during the session versus simply "learning about" something.

 

Payments, honoraria, and/or other expenditures associated with this fund will follow the Careers & Experiential Guide to Payments developed in partnership with the Social Sciences Finance team.

 

Questions can be directed to Ruthanne Talbot on the Careers & EE team at talbotr@mcmaster.ca.
