Charles Mackie Student Initiative Fund 2022/23
The School supports student initiatives financially with the Charles Mackie Student Initiative Fund, awarded annually.
The School has a small amount of money set aside each semester to support internal undergraduate student initiatives which contribute to the student experience. We are especially interested in activities that will stimulate community building.
To be eligible for this fund you must be affiliated to a School Society which is supportive of the activity you are seeking funding for. Applications will be assessed by a panel consisting of student support staff and relevant academics.
- Semester 1: Friday 18th November. The outcome in semester 1 will be advised by Friday 2nd December.
- Semester 2: Friday 3rd March. Outcome date TBC.
- All events and funding must be completed by 31st July 2023.
To be eligible for this fund you must be affiliated to an HCA society who are supportive of the activity you are seeking funding for.
We allow applicants to either apply for funding for one-off projects to a maximum of £200, or a maximum £500 for longer-term projects.
For longer-term projects, we would expect to see evidence of a plan to match fund from elsewhere.
If those longer-term projects come back for second round of funding from the student initiatives fund the following year, they will have to demonstrate that they raised some match funding in the previous year which contributed to the previous year’s project – i.e. demonstrate track record of raising additional funds.
The budget for the Student Initiative Fund will be reviewed year on year depending on availability of School funds, and that the total pot to disperse each year may vary.
