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. There will be another round of applications later in the semester, with a deadline of Friday 12 April. 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.
