Healthy Schools Network (HSN) School Grants Deadline Coming Soon
The last day to apply is November  10th, 2017

The deadline for Health Schools Network (HSN) School Grants is quickly approaching. The last day to apply for an HSN School Grant is November 10th, 2017 - don’t miss this amazing opportunity! These grants encompass a new overarching theme of mental well-being. The focus this year is on well-being in a real-world context

The HSN School Grant is a $750 grant opportunity that supports public, First Nations and independent schools to use inquiry-based, whole school approaches to address mental well-being priorities. It provides financial support for schools as they transform the way that they address mental well-being across various aspects of the school environment.

Successful applications will have an inquiry focus on the promotion of mental well-being as it relates to students’ learning, health and development, and will connect their work to two overarching questions:

  1. How is it feasible to promote mental well-being through all environments that promote student learning, health, and success?
  2. How does mental well-being impact the ‘whole child’?

Preference will be given to applications that address the whole school environment with actions across interrelated learning areas, or that link to community initiatives. Consideration will be given to equitable regional distribution of approved applications across the province.

Due to a finite amount of funding available for school grants, applications will only be accepted from October 9th to November 10th, 2017 through apply.dashbc.ca. Please note that you will need to set up a free account in order to submit an application.

If you have applied for an HSN School Grant in the past, we encourage you to apply again this year! Just remember that, before you can apply for this year’s grants, you must post your previous grant’s year-end story on the Healthy Schools BC Stories Map. If you need any support in sharing your story, please contact Sonia at sali@dashbc.ca

We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Province of British Columbia through the Ministry of Health.
