Financial support for sporting activities, musical and drama tours etc.
Grants are made by a Committee consisting of the Senior Tutor, Senior Postgraduate Tutor, Finance Tutor, and other Fellows. Such grants (up to a maximum of £350) are usually made for sports or similar expenses where the student is representing the University or playing at national level, or for specific events or travel which are related in some way to the student’s University activities for example theatre trips.
Applications should be made via the form below giving details of which team you are playing for and the expenses you are incurring, and a signature from the Senior Treasurer verifying the amount claimed. A student may only be awarded one grant in each academic year. Note that funding for club subs and specific University match kit is permitted, but non-match kit is not. We also do not cover the basic expenses of simply playing the sport in the first place (for example football boots or a tennis racquet).
The availability of other sources of support for such activities, e.g. the Hawks Charitable Trust, and the Ospreys should also be noted, and the Small Grants Committee will wish to know that any applicant for their funds has explored the possibility of getting funding from these other sources. Note that, according to the advice on their website, Osprey Bursaries are available only to teams, and apparently not to individuals. Similarly, the CCRFC only supports College clubs and not individuals. Applications to the Hawks Charitable Trust and to the Ospreys need to be made by the end of the Michaelmas term.) You can find further information about sports bursaries on the University website.
Application forms are to be submitted two weeks prior to the end of full term.
The applications for Michaelmas Term 2023 are now closed. Any applications made going forward will be considered in Lent Term 2o24.
