The Wellness Wheel!!!

BUSM Student Affairs Wellness Funding

As you know, the Student Affairs Office, in coordination with SCOMSA, provides wellness funding for specific activities that promote student well-being at BU School of Medicine. Eligible events/initiatives may be sponsored by a group of students or an individual student, and they can take place either on or off campus. Anybody with a good idea is welcome to apply! Note that an activity is only eligible for either Wellness Funding or SCOMSA funding. Previously funded activities have included:

  • Hike to Hiebert challenge
  • Kayaking on the Charles
  • Succulent Making Workshops
  • Recreational fitness events (i.e. Dodgeball, Kickball)

How to apply for wellness funding: First, please set up a meeting with Camille Serelus, the Wellness and Advising Program Coordinator, to discuss your idea(s). Following this meeting, you will submit a Wellness Funding Request providing the objective(s) of the project/program as well as your estimated budget. Student Affairs will then review your application with input from SCOMSA. You will hear back from Camille within a week.  Given the process, we recommend that you start planning with at least a month of lead time. 

Feel free to email Camille (cserelus@bu.edu) directly to discuss your ideas, or just to talk about student wellness more broadly.
