Request WP funding support

For College of Science and Engineering Departments only

For the 2014/2015 academic year, the College has assigned a WP budget to help fund College level collaborative activity being delivered in support of our College and institutional WP and Outreach agenda.

This funding is being made available specifically for WP targeted activity rather than broader outreach activity, although we recognise these do often overlap.

This funding is primarily intended to assist departments working collaboratively to provide a broader activity base in support of our WP agenda. Collaborative activities will be given priority during any funding decision but this does not exclude department specific activity support requests being submitted. Previous collaborative activities have included events such as our Stargazing Live event, the Big Bang fair and the G-STEM conference.

How to apply

If you are interested in submitting a request for funding support, you need to complete the 'WP funding support request form'.

We are accepting funding requests ranging up to £2000 / submission, although larger requests will be considered on a case by case basis. We will have the two funding round call outs this year to alloe you to assess your full year’s activity plans and enable you to access some of the additional funding support you may need at different points during the year

The closing dates for each funding round is as follows:
12.00 pm Midday on Friday 5 December 2014
12.00 pm Midday on Friday 6 March 2015.
