The Strath Union building

Participation Fund

If you are struggling to afford to get involved with a Strathclyde Students' Union or University of Strathclyde activity (such as a society, sport or volunteering opportunity), and meet the relevant criteria, then you can apply to our Participation Fund for support.

Apply for funding to take part in Union or University Activities

The fund is designed to assist current registered students who are in need of additional financial support to aid with the costs of participating in activities run by or in conjunction with the Union or the University in order to enrich the student experience and enhance engagement.

The fund will consider applications for financial contribution towards activities that enhance the student’s experience or development, but are not essential parts of their course, e.g.: Sports Union membership, Strathclyde Sports membership, activities/events run by Union Clubs or Societies, international exchange opportunities.     

It is vital that you read the Application Guidance prior to applying. For any questions, please contact
