Fair Access Project Fund

BU’s Fair Access Agreement includes a project fund to support Fair Access and Widening Participation projects. Faculties and Professional Services are invited to bid for funding for targeted projects which focus on one or more of the below listed BU’s Fair Access priorities. Please note that projects are expected to commence in January 2017.


Projects must address one or more of the below priorities to bid for funds.

  1. Intersectional issues relating to race, alongside other WP Indicator Groups and Protected Characteristics in respect to access, student success and attainment.
  2. Innovative initiatives which contribute to the engagement of disadvantaged students outside of BU’s traditional target outreach geographic areas.
  3. Initiatives leading to successful employment or progression to post graduate study of undergraduate WP students. This can include working directly with employers.
  4. Initiatives improving the access, success or progression of white working class boys.

Projects that do not directly address a listed priority will be unsuccessful.

How to apply? To apply for funding, please complete the Project Proposal Grant Application form and email it to Lukasz Naglik by Friday 18 November 2016.
