Funding now open for Black History Month celebrations

August 23rd, 2021

As part of the university’s ongoing commitment to EDI, we are inviting applications for the celebration of Black history, culture, and achievements to take place during Black History Month in October 2021.

This funding initiative is designed to support multiple locally planned Black History Month activities throughout October 2021.

Help us celebrate and recognise Black History Month 2021

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 Programme Board.

Applicants are encouraged to seek matched by funding from another source (this could be the associated School/Department/Group or an external source).

For applications, please complete this form by Wednesday 15 September 2021. 

Applications should indicate how the local event or activity is connected to the EDI Strategic Delivery Plan and our Race Equality Charter objectives.

Applicants are also encouraged to consider intersectionality of their events with our four inclusion focus areas for 2021/22:

  • Faith and Religion
  • Neurodiversity
  • Socio-economic equality
  • Parenting and caring responsibilities.

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