Apply for an Alumni Fund grant
Find out how to access funding for your project or placement opportunity.
Alumni Fund Grants
Thanks to the generosity of our alumni and friends the University is able to award a number of grants to support our students, staff and University community. Alumni Fund grants can be made for any project which will enhance the University experience across the wider community. These can support new innovations in academic contexts, fund new equipment or enable new activities to be piloted.
Applications are now open for the next round of funding and close on 7 February 2020. Decisions will be made in March 2020.
Applications are very occasionally considered outside the main funding rounds if there is a compelling reason why the Panel should make a special exception.
If you are interested in applying to the Alumni Fund for a (non SU) grant, we strongly encourage you to come and discuss your project before submitting your application. Book here to come to one of our information sessions.
If you are interested in applying on behalf of an SU club or society, please contact the SU Sports Officer or SU Activities Officer for advice.
Before you apply, read our guide to making a good application.
Alumni Fund Placement Grants
If you are going on placement you may also be eligible for an Alumni Fund Placement Grant.
We will consider applications from individual students requesting personal funding for a placement which will enhance their career prospects.
