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.

The successful applications in Semester 2, 2016/17 were:

  • Abi Reynold - Brownie pack weekend
  • Natasha Downs, Tania Hudson, Andy Melhuish and Mark Whiteman - Zine project for people with learning disabilities
  • Julia Malaby - Arts workshop in sheltered housing
  • James Burley-Jukes - Sensory garden
  • Luke Hanshaw - Youth football club

The next round of applications will be in Semester 1, 2017/18. The deadline is Tuesday 14 November 2017.

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.

Who can apply

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