Student Projects Grant Scheme

In our 50th anniversary year, we aim to celebrate the achievements of our students and inspire them to excel both personally and academically. The Student Projects Grant Scheme provides the stepping stone to achieve this goal.

The Grant Scheme is funded by the Kent Opportunity Fund, which supports students by providing scholarships and bursaries to those experiencing financial hardship, and projects to enhance personal and professional skills. The Grant Scheme encourages individuals to bid for funds to run projects that will enhance the student experience and employability of Kent students.

The total amount available to fund student projects in the 2014/15 academic year is £65,000, with grants of up to a maximum of £5,000. Applications are welcome from student groups in Kent Union, departments, faculties and schools across the University, including our campuses at Canterbury and Medway, our centre in Tonbridge and our European centres in Brussels, Paris, Athens and Rome.

The Student Projects Grant Scheme will be open for applications on 6 October 2014, and all submissions must be made by the deadline of 19 December 2014. To find out more, see the Kent Opportunity Fund webpages.
