Our scheme helps the development of projects, community activities and sustainable local action through funding and collaboration. We support local people's vision for a better Edinburgh.

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. The next round of applications will be in the autumn. Sign up to the Edinburgh Local newsletter to receive updates.
Our micro-grant scheme is also open all year round for applications for funding of up to £500.
