Chancellor's Fund for Sport

Chancellor's Fund for Sport

The Chancellor's Fund for Sport is a sub-section of the Chancellor's Fund and is delegated to GUSA to award to one-off sporting trips/projects for students at the University of Glasgow.

In the past we have had trips such as:

  • Sparring atop Ben Nevis
  • Climbing Kilimanjaro
  • A 24hour cycle at Le Mans racetrack in France
  • Trekking the GR10 route through the Pyrenees
  • Swimming the Channel

Applicants should be looking for aid in trips which are once-in-a-lifetime opportunities and those which take them away from their usual sporting activities. 

Applications and guidelines for the Fund can be found detailed below:
