Apply for a Greatest Need Fund Grant
Do you have an idea that will have a positive impact on a large audience? Or will substantially improve our students’ experience of University? Or both? Then apply for a grant from our Greatest Need Fund to develop it. It could be for a piece of valuable research you are working on; an educational outreach programme; to set up an interest group – anything that meets one of these criteria.
The typical value of grants is up to £3,000, though in exceptional circumstances bids of up to £5,000 will be considered.
All staff and students can apply for a grant, either as an individual or as a team.
What is the Greatest Need Fund?

The submission process is quick and easy, so I encourage you to apply. I am looking forward to reading the submissions.
