“Navigation is challenging for people with visual impairment. Thanks to the support of the Alumni Fund, we were able to buy motion capture equipment which could be developed to help blind people to carry out everyday tasks more easily.”

Grants are made available through an awards process to which any department, group, society or club may apply.  Awards are usually under £10,000 but, on occasion, larger awards are made.

Please note funding cannot be given to normal academic activities, individual conference attendance, and ongoing running costs of any activity or event expenses such as catering.

You can now apply for an Alumni Fund Grant.  The deadline is 25 January 2018.

Apply now.
