The Chancellor’s Fund

The fund, awarded bi-annually, will support those who need modest awards of between £100 – £1,000 to assist with extracurricular activities – cultural, voluntary, sporting – and wider training, travel bursaries, research and priority projects in line with the University’s strategic plan. The Fund has previously helped students with their travel costs to allow them to take up volunteering opportunities and for PhD students to exhibit their work and attend international conferences to present papers.

Mandy Ann Smith studied Surface Design and Printed Textiles BA (Hons) and was a 2016 Chancellor's Fund Recipient. She says "The generous award made by the Chancellor's Fund was invaluable to me. I wouldn't have been able to attend and network at the prestigious New Designer's Show without this financial support."
