Through the Gate art and craft project

Student Impact Fund

The Student Impact Fund gives financial support to student-led, extra-curricular projects. It is funded thanks to the generosity of Brookes alumni.

If you have an idea for a project, the deadline for the next round of applications is Tuesday 12 February 2019. Please read the how to apply page before submitting your application.

Who can your project help

It should have a positive impact on members of your local community and/or your fellow students. Also, you will gain valuable employment and life skills.

It is up to you what your project is about - your idea, your passion. Recent examples include an arts and craft course for people with mental health needs, athletics coaching for local children and a kitchen garden for children in a special needs school. 

What sort of project will get funding

  • a one-off project
  • needing no more than £500 funding
  • extra-curricular (ie not part of your course)
  • not directly connected to a society that is already receiving funding.

The project should be informed by Oxford Brookes’ guiding principles: generosity of spirit, confidence, enterprising creativity and connectedness. It can contribute towards a Brookes ID award.

Who can apply

  • any current Oxford Brookes students
  • either as an individual or as part of a group of other Brookes students.
