Funding opportunities 2016/17

'Rapid Response' Grants (up to £3000)

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, and we are accepting bids now for funding available from 1 August 2016. Decisions will be made within two weeks by a small panel led by John Robinson, PVC for Teaching, Learning and Information.

11 departments received project funding in September, and no further funding is available for 2016/17.
