Apply for funding of up to £3,000 through the Alumni and Friends Fund grant

Alumni and Friends Award Winners

Applications for the Alumni and Friends Fund grant are now open!

Students, staff and societies are invited to apply for funding of up to £3,000 to support activities that offer wide benefit, support the student experience, provide students with academic or extracurricular opportunities, offer long-term benefits, or enable students and the University to engage with the local community.

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.

Last academic year, the Alumni and Friends Fund grant was awarded to 23 projects which met a variety of different needs, including supporting the launch of a Vet Yoga Club for students studying at our Leahurst campus to creating sensory spaces for students in the Library and School of Histories, Languages and Cultures.

Anna, Vet Yoga President said: “We would like to thank all of the fund supporters for this generous grant. This funding has come at the perfect time for us, whilst the cost of living crisis has hindered so many people from participating in activities that they enjoy, we will now be able to provide the best quality yoga classes to vet students in their clinical years, regardless of their ability to purchase equipment including yoga mats”.

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.

Submissions close on Friday 3 November 2023. For more information and to apply, visit:
