- Can identify goals and evaluation metrics.
- Can provide an appropriate description of how the funds will be used.
- Funding from McWell is integral to making the event a success.
- Application is submitted at least two weeks prior to date of event.
- Alcohol alternative mini grant requirement: On Thursday, Friday or Saturday night after 9 pm OR an alternative event directly linked to a high-risk time (ex: alcohol-free game watch).
- Well-being mini grant requirement: Can identify what dimension of well-being the event aims to impact and how.
Clubs and organizations that receive funding will also be asked to complete a brief post-event survey and display a McWell promotional poster at the event.
