Alumni and Friends Fund grant applications

In addition to supporting the University’s fundraising priorities, a proportion of the money raised through the Student Fund is made available to support one-off projects across the University.

Students, staff or societies can apply for funding of up to £3,000 to support projects which could include improving student facilities or enhancing communal spaces, providing students with opportunities not otherwise available to them (academic or extracurricular), or for initiatives that enable students and the University to engage with the local community i.e. student outreach activity that enhances the student experience.

Funds are distributed annually, and applications are invited from representatives from clubs and societies registered with the Guild of Students or Athletics Union and the University of Liverpool academic and professional services staff.

If you have an idea that will either:

  • Support the student experience
  • Offer the broadest possible benefit, i.e. to the University as a whole or to a large constituency. Projects benefiting only one individual will be given the lowest priority
  • Meet a clearly expressed student, academic or overall University need
  • Require one-off funding
  • Offer long-term benefits or added value. Requests for pump-priming for new initiatives, that will leverage funds from other sources, will be welcomed.

We will consider match-funding smaller projects. Projects requiring part funding will only be considered if the remaining funds are available.

Applications are now closed and will re-open in autumn 2024.
