What is Jack.org/Queen’s Student Initiative Fund?
The Jack.org/Queen’s Student Initiative Fund wishes to support and encourage the students at Queen’s as they take ownership of the topic of mental health and wellness on campus. Often it is students who possess the creative energy and enthusiasm to run fantastic events, programs, and activities to create real and substantial change.
To help with the financial burden of these initiatives, the Jack.org/Queen’s Student Initiative Fund provides funding opportunities for special projects and initiatives that support student health and wellness, with a specific emphasis on mental health.
