What is the Fund and why does it exist?

The Participation Fund is currently closed for applications.

This Fund is provided by the University of Strathclyde’s Alumni Fund. The Alumni Fund provides funds to enhance the Strathclyde experience of current and future generations of students through scholarships, clubs, societies and international development projects. This project aims to widen access for Strathclyde students who are financially disadvantaged to get involved in extra-curricular activities on and off campus.

The Fund was created primarily for students from widening access backgrounds, mature, disabled, carers and care experienced students to remove financial barriers and provide students with an inclusive Strathclyde experience whilst encouraging career prospect development through extra-curricular activities.

Details on the categories of widening access backgrounds can be found here.

What can be applied for from the Fund?

Any costs to individual students which enables them to be a member or to get involved and participate in activities which are run by the Strathclyde Students' Union and organisations working in partnership with the Union, including the University. These costs may include membership fees and travel expenses, etc. 

What is the application process?

Once the application has been received by Strathclyde Students' Union, it will be considered by the Grant Funding Panel which consists of Executive Officers and Staff members within the Union. The applicant will be notified as soon as possible after the Panel meeting of the decision and will be confirmed in writing no later than 5 working days from receipt of application.
