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:
