Apply to the Stirling Fund

Every year the Stirling Fund supports a variety of projects that enhance employability, embrace diversity and inclusion, and promote global citizenship among staff and students, making Stirling an even better place to live and study.

To be awarded funding, projects must demonstrate that they will enhance the student experience across the wider student community, benefitting current and future generations of students.

Applications for the Stirling Fund 2019/20 have now closed. The fund will re-open in Autumn 2020.

Writing your application

When writing your application, there are a number of things you should consider:

  • Think BIG: your project should be innovative, exciting and inspirational!
  • Plan your budget.
  • Does your project influence the majority?
  • Consider the long term implications if you are applying for funding towards an event; the Stirling Fund will only support one-off initiatives and start up costs.
  • Check your grammar: a badly written application is less likely to receive funding. Why not ask a friend, staff member or colleague to proof read it for you?

Also for guidance we have a couple of examples of successful application forms submitted to the Stirling Fund.

If you need help with your application, email us at philanthropy@stir.ac.uk.
