Rapid Response Grants

'Rapid Response' Fund (for grants up to £3,000) is open for 2019/20 applications

Applications for Rapid Response Fund grants (up to £3,000 ) are invited for the 2019/20 financial year.  Applications may be submitted electronically at any time, and we are now accepting bids for funding as of 1 August 2019.

These grants are to support small-scale short-term projects, initiatives or purchases to enhance the quality of learning and teaching by addressing a clearly-identified need or issue. Funding is limited, and grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis; please also note that departments in a stronger financial position may be asked to fund initiatives from their own resources.

Applications may be submitted electronically at any time during the 2019/20 financial year, from 1 August 2019.  Funds must be spent by 31 July 2020. Decisions will be made within two weeks by a small panel led by John Robinson, PVC for Teaching, Learning and Students.
