The Chancellor’s Fund is open for applications for consideration by the Chancellor’s Fund Advisory Board at its next meeting.

The Chancellor’s Fund benefits from unrestricted gifts to the University and supports a wide range of projects in the following categories:

  • Supporting our students by helping to provide a rich and rewarding university experience.
  • Enhancing the learning environment by providing access to new technologies and enhanced facilities.
  • Developing excellence by providing support for research, teaching and promoting academic developments.
  • Preserving the University’s heritage, enhancing the physical and cultural heritage of the University.
  • Advance projects aimed at tackling environmental sustainability in line with the University's response to the climate change emergency.

Due to the high number of applications now being submitted to the Chancellor’s Fund, the Advisory Board is likely to give preference to applications where some funding has already been secured, preferably to a level where this would match any funding given by the Chancellor’s Fund. The maximum grant made is unlikely to exceed £7,000.

If you or colleagues have a project that may benefit from support from the Fund, and be eligible, please complete an application form, which can be found attached and on the Development & Alumni Office webpages: Go here for Chancellor Fund guidelines.
