Call for funding: Black History Month activities


August 18th, 2020

As part of the University’s ongoing commitment to EDI, we are inviting applications for the celebration of Black culture and achievements to take place during Black History Month in October 2020.

This is especially timely in light of recent events triggered by George Floyd’s death, the Black Lives Matter movement and the continuing need for anti-racist actions.

This funding initiative is designed to support multiple locally-planned Black History Month activities throughout October 2020.

Funding will be awarded to host local events or activities to a maximum of £200 with applications to be assessed by the Black History Month Planning Committee.

The funding is available on condition that it will be matched by funding from another source (this could be the associated School/Department/Group or an external source).

If your application involves face-to-face events then please visit the University’s Coronavirus webpages as your main source of information and guidance.

For applications, please complete this form by Monday 31 August 2020.
