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.

In the 2020/21 academic year there will be one round of applications. Details of deadlines and how to apply will be available early in 2021.

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 would like more information on ‘out of phase’ applications, please email

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 further information.

Alumni Fund Placement Grants

The Alumni Fund also makes grants to students to enable them to undertake a placement. Typically these awards are made to students who can demonstrate a shortfall in funding to complete their placement. All awards for the 2020/21 academic year have now been made.

Details of the Alumni Fund Placement Grants for students going on placement in the 2021/22 academic year will be available towards the start of Semester 2.
