Applications Invited for Student Projects Grant Scheme

The Student Projects Grant Scheme 2020 is now inviting applications from student groups and societies.

Funded by the Kent Opportunity Fund, which was established to increase opportunities for students at Kent, The Student Projects Grant Scheme allows donations given by alumni and friends of the University to reach as many students as possible by enabling groups of students to bid for funds to run their own projects.

The 2020 Student Projects Grant Scheme will be open for applications on 1st December 2019. The maximum grant is £2000 per project. There is £10,000 available to fund Student Projects this year. Applications are welcome from student societies in Kent Union, and students groups representing departments, faculties and schools across the University, including the campuses in Canterbury and Medway, our centre in Tonbridge and the University’s European centres in Brussels, Paris, Athens and Rome. The deadline for the applications will be 17th January 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact Alex Perkins (01227 824547). To find out more please visit the Student Projects page.

The Students Project Scheme receives a number of varied applications from students each year. Applications for funding are always of a high quality and this year the Panel has to allocate £10k to support projects that will further enhance the student experience and employability of Kent students.”
