Open lectures funds

The Public Lectures Fund (formerly known as the Distinguished Visitors Fund) is administered by the Public Lectures Committee. Grants are allocated, as and when the funds within its control allow, to help meet the expenses incurred by colleges, departments and student societies in inviting distinguished visitors and scholars to come to the University.

There are two elements to the Fund, the Public Lectures Fund which can grant a maximum of £300 per event to departments (£500 for an international speaker), colleges and student societies, and the Jim Matthew Fund, which can grant a maximum of £1,000 to University departments only. Applications to the Jim Matthew Fund are invited once a year.
