The Alumni and Friends Fund is the University of Liverpool’s annual fundraising initiative, run by the Development and Alumni Relations team, which raises funds from alumni, graduates, friends and staff. In addition to supporting the University’s fundraising priorities, a proportion of unrestricted funding is made available to fund one-off projects across the University.
Students, staff and societies can apply for funding of up to £5,000 to support activities that offer wide benefit, support the student experience, provide students with opportunities not otherwise available to them (academic or extracurricular), offer long-term benefit and/or enable students and the University to engage with the local community.
Last academic year, the Alumni and Friends Fund grant was awarded to seven projects which met a variety of different needs, including building the first wildlife pond on campus by the University of Liverpool Biodiversity Action Group and kickstarting the development of the Experimental Archaeology Centre at the University’s Botanic Gardens at Ness.#
The Photogrammetry Team were also awarded the Alumni & Friends Fund grant to purchase three cameras which would allow them to carry out a new method of photogrammetry which was COVID-19 safe. Much of the team’s former museum and lab-based work was disrupted due to the pandemic and outdoor photogrammetry activities provided an opportunity for the team to continue their important research.
“We cannot thank enough the Alumni and Friends donors and supporters (and coordination team) for your continued interest and support in the Photogrammetry Teams activities and development. Your support has been instrumental in the establishment of the Photogrammetry Team, which has directly contributed to the educational, and professional development of all members of the team as well as the impact the university has had on the field of photogrammetry in digital heritage.” – Dr Ardern Hulme-Beaman, Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in the Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology
Other projects in receipt of the Alumni and Friends Fund Grant include:
If you have an idea that will benefit students, staff, or the University as a whole, please send us your application. Applications are invited from students, representatives from clubs and societies registered with the Guild of Students or Athletics Union, and University of Liverpool academic and professional services staff.
