Friends Programme funding
Departments, colleges and individuals can apply for funding (most grants will be in the £2,000 - £3,000 category). The next round of disbursement of funds will take place in December 2012.
Applications for funding will need to tie in with the Unviersity strategy and fall under at least one of the following categories: Priority Fund, Student Support Fund, or Research & Academic Excellence Fund.
The money available for funding is raised in the Friends Programme. The majority being raised in our telephone campaigns by a team of extremely hardworking and enthusiastic Lancaster students. You can also follow the call team's fundraising efforts on Twitter: @LUCALLTEAM
Please note: applications from individuals (academic or student) seeking support for tuition, other course fees or personal maintenance costs do not fall into the criteria for Friends Programme funding. Unfortunately we can only allow one application per college and a maximum of five applications per faculty.
