The Vancouver Island Social Innovation Zone (of which Royal Roads University is a partner) is excited to announce the Social Innovation Cohort - a pilot offering $10,000 grant for Social Innovation/Social Enterprises on Vancouver Island and matching with a partially funded co-op student.

The Social Innovation Cohort pilot will advance social innovation on Vancouver Island by building on the assets of colleges and universities, providing a community-based work experience for students and delivering financial and technical assistance and capacity value to support social innovation in local communities.

The overall goal is to pilot a process that builds on the assets of, and benefits community, students and post-secondary institutions, and advances social innovation, social enterprise and social finance on Vancouver Island.
