Thinking about applying for an Alumni Fund Grant, but not sure your project is eligible or have some questions?

The Alumni Fund team will be holding a drop in session to discuss applications on Tuesday 7 March, between 12pm and 2pm in the East Building Rm 2.2. 

The Alumni Fund supports projects around campus that will improve student life, enhance the quality and reach of teaching and uplift the University’s reputation for excellence.

“Navigation is challenging for people with visual impairment. Thanks to the support of the Alumni Fund, we were able to buy motion capture equipment which could be developed to help blind people to carry out everyday tasks more easily.”
Dr Karin Petrini, Lecturer in Experimental and Cognitive Psychology  

Grants are made available through an awards process to which any department, group, society or club may apply.  Awards are usually under £10,000 but, on occasion, larger awards are made. 

Please note funding cannot be given to normal academic activities, individual conference attendance, ongoing running costs of any activity or event expenses such as catering.

There’s still time to apply for an Alumni Fund Grant.  The deadline for applications is 19 March 2017.

Apply now.
