About the grants
The aims of the Edinburgh Local Community Grants scheme are to:
- Increase engagement between the University and local communities
- Have a positive social impact
We welcome applications for projects or activities that will involve and benefit people living and/or working in the Edinburgh City Region (The Region includes the City of Edinburgh, Fife, West Lothian, Midlothian, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders).
Applications are welcome from not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises.
The Community Grants Scheme is now closed for applications. The scheme will open again in Autumn 2021.
However, our micro-grant scheme is open all year round for applications for funding of up to £500:

We’re delighted that The University of Edinburgh has awarded us a grant which will help our organisation deliver even more important programmes for local people.
