Fair Access Project Fund – call for under £25,000 short term projects

BU’s Fair Access Agreement includes a project fund to support Fair Access (FA) and Widening Participation (WP) projects and innovation. Faculties and Professional Services are invited to bid for funding to support specific and targeted projects that will have a FA or WP impact. It is hoped the projects will contribute to and inform the growing evidence base on FA and WP work.

This call is open for short term projects costing under £25,000 that will complete spend by 31 July 2015. We would also welcome applications for projects involving organisations external to BU where there is a clear link to WP and there is a BU staff member sponsor who holds a steering role in the project.

To submit a proposal for funding, please complete the complete the application form and email and email it to Lukasz Naglik.  Please also contact Lukasz if you would like to discuss this opportunity further or if you would like to find out about current  Fair Access and Widening Participation projects.

Further opportunities for bidding for longer term projects and for projects costing over £25,000 will be advertised in September 2015.
