Grants for Sports and Wellbeing

The College has dedicated funds to support student well-being and participation in sports 2023-24. Grants will be given on the authorization of the College’s Academic Administrator, and will not normally exceed £100 per student per annum (or £150 for students applying for funds in connection with Blues/Half-Blues expenses). Example uses may include: support towards Blues charges or kit, sports equipment, support towards bikes, course fees, or participation in clubs, music or welfare classes

Facilities otherwise provided free of charge (e.g. gym membership) will not be supported. These grants are specifically for an indivdual's needs, not a sports team and amounts that seem unreasonably high will require further discussion. There is no guarantee of grants being given, and should the funds be exhausted within the academic year, no further grants will be dispersed.

If you are in any doubt as to whether an activity will be covered by a grant, please seek pre-approval prior to purchase: proof of expenditure will be required once authorized.

Claims must be made by the end of Hilary Term to be considered for the academic year.
