Notes for Student Development Awards and SCR Performing Arts Grants

  • Applications cannot be made to fund activities which are a compulsory part of your course, or for which you have received full funding from other sources
  • Retrospective applications are allowed for activities which have taken place previously providing that evidence of the activity and expenditure are supplied
  • Applicants must provide evidence of the activities when they apply - this can be confirmation emails from organisers, acceptance letters, receipts, etc. If this is not possible, please provide an explanation. Applications without this evidence will not be considered.

Guidance on Completing Your Application

Remember that your application will be assessed by non-specialists, so it is important that you take the time to complete the form thoroughly and include the required information and evidence. Competition is strong, and therefore the more clear and concise you can be, the greater your chances of success.

You should make it clear how much you require in total, and breakdown this figure into general components (e.g. travel, accommodation, subsistence, conference registration, bench fees, equipment, etc). You should also include details of any additional funding which you are applying for or have received from other sources (including private/personal).

Assessment of the Applications

Applications will be considered by a panel of senior members of the College, with applicants being notified by email.

Follow up

Grant and Award recipients are required to provide photographs and a short 500-word report on activities undertaken by the second week of the following term, which may be made publicly available on the website and other media.

You may also be expected to share your experience with other members of the Society through JCR, SCR or alumni activities.
