Students as Partners (SaP) Dissemination Funding


The Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic is providing $40,000 until June 2024 to support undergraduate students involved in funded SaP projects to disseminate outcomes from those projects. Funds are managed and adjudicated by the Centre for Teaching Learning and Technology.

The fund supports dissemination of SaP project work including the sharing of results from course design/re-design work with audiences, to contribute to students’ professional development.

Recipients may be invited to contribute to SaP activities at UBC in order to build capacity in the field. These contributions may include being involved in a professional development workshop or lunch and learn, participating as a panelist in an SaP event, etc.


Current undergraduate students at UBC Vancouver who are involved in a funded SaP project can apply to the fund, which can be used for dissemination expenses (up to $1,000) including presentations.


  • Conference submissions must be “accepted” and have a focus on the SaP funded project work. Please note that “submitted” and/or “under review” submissions will not be considered.
  • Students must be presenting a paper or poster virtually or in person at an academic conference, such as annual disciplinary meetings or more focused workshops or symposia; or be participating in, performing or exhibiting an artistic work virtually or in person.
  • The conference must be organized by a recognized scholarly organization. The accepted conference submission must be peer reviewed.
  • For conference presentations involving multiple undergraduate student partners, up to $1,000 per project (not per person) will be granted.
