The Activities Fund is for the development of societies and thier activities
Decisions about which applications to fund are discussed by the relevant committee (AU Exec or Societies Exec), elected groups of students who meet every two weeks during term time. The final decision lies with the Activities and Development Officer, who chairs the committee.
There is no formal limit on the size of grants to be allocated, but, in general, the committee does not approve applications of more than £1,000 unless there is a very good reason to do so. This is to ensure that a large number of clubs and societies are able to benefit from the fund. That being said, there is no limit on the number of applications that you can make during the year for different projects.
What can you apply for?
How to apply?
If you think your proposed idea meets the criteria, you can apply online below.
Your application will then be sent to the Activities Committee who will meet every two weeks during term-time. They will discuss your application in their next meeting and you will receive an email with the outcome within two weeks of the committee meeting. There are no appeals for rejected applications.
The Activities Committee does not start again until term time. You are welcome to submit an application but it will not be reviewed until October 1st.
