Funding Your Endeavour

Knowledge exchange projects rarely start out as major programmes of work. Such large-scale projects tend to grow from more humble beginnings, such as a feasibility study or a student internship.

There are many ways in which engagement with the university can be funded. Although welcome, financial contributions are not always a pre-requisite to partnering. If you have been inspired by any of the articles in Reach and wish to discuss a potential project, no matter how small, email ( the College of Arts KE Team today.
