Heroes for Health

Help make the U of A a healthier place with a Heroes for Health Grant.

The Heroes for Health (H4H) Grant encourages the University of Alberta students, staff, and faculty to work together in creating unique initiatives that contribute to the culture of wellness on our campus. This year we are seeking new, innovative, campus-wide initiatives that enhance social connections, promote positive mental health, boost physical activity, and/or encourage the interconnection of other wellness areas. Have an idea? Let us help you turn your idea into action! 

Heroes for Health grant applications will open on January 29, 2020. 

Need help getting started?

The H4H grants serve to support the efforts of our campus community members who work towards creating a culture of wellness on our campus and contributing to making UAlberta a better place. Through partnerships with Alumni Association, Campus & Community Recreation, Human Resources Services, and Healthy Campus Unit, students, staff, and faculty can be funded for up to $5000 for their ideas.
