Cascade: up to £10,000 for student projects


January 13th, 2022

Staff and current students can apply for up to £10,000 to fund projects that benefit the student experience.

The Cascade funding programme gives staff and current students the opportunity to apply for up to £10,000 in funding for projects that benefit the overall student experience.

The programme uses donations from alumni and friends of the university, and 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
