Cascade: up to £10,000 for projects that benefit the student experience – Deadline extended

October 28th, 2021

Thanks to donations from alumni and friends, staff and current students can apply for up to £10,000 to fund projects that benefit the student experience.

Due to an IT issue, applications for Cascade funding may not have been received and so the deadline has been extended.

Cascade projects may be academic, pastoral or extracurricular, but they must directly enhance the student experience and cascade the positive impact the student community can create.

The programme has gifted over £1 million to more than 120 projects since 2007.

Previous funding has supported student-led initiatives such as Community First Responders, Liter of Light, Global Buddy Scheme and Foodprint.

Of special interest to the programme are projects that:

  • Connect campuses and communities
  • Encourage creativity and innovation
  • Enhance teaching and learning experiences
  • Promote environmental sustainability
  • Advocate for global citizenship
  • Promote healthy bodies and healthy minds

The deadline for expression of interest is Monday 8 November and the deadline for applications is Sunday 14 November.

If you’re interested in applying for funding or would like more information, please visit the website.
