Introducing the Brighton Students' Union Participation Fund
At Brighton Students' Union, we are unwavering in our commitment to creating an inclusive and vibrant student community. We are thrilled to introduce the Participation Fund to ensure that everyone is able to take part in extracurricular activities and be a part of the student community.
Empowering Your Engagement: Unveiling the Participation Fund
The mission is crystal clear: we want to remove financial barriers that could hinder your participation in transformative extracurricular activities. We firmly believe that every student should have equal access to explore a myriad of interests, whether it's joining spirited sports teams, immersing yourself in captivating societies, or embarking on riveting non-course related trips. The Participation Fund, is your exclusive gateway to unleashing the full spectrum of student life at the University of Brighton.
Transforming Through Participation: Impact on Your Journey
Beyond lecture halls and textbooks, extracurricular activities cultivate all-encompassing growth and personal evolution. Students who actively partake in these activities consistently report heightened physical and mental wellbeing, a higher sense of belonging, and feel more connected to the university community. Data also highlights a compelling link between participation in extracurricular activities and academic achievements—setting the stage for an enhanced prospect of securing a higher-class degree upon graduation.
Your Pathway: How to Engage
Ready to seize these opportunities? If you're a current University of Brighton student driven by a passion to broaden your horizons, the Brighton Students' Union Participation Fund is your avenue to a world of possibilities. With a generous pot of £10,000, you can claim up to £100 to fuel your chosen activities. It's important to note that the fund isn't intended to cover living expenses or course-related costs. If you need help with these you can access the University hardship funds here.
We can only fund extracurricular activities within the University community. For example, if you're looking to join a sports club, go on a society trip or take part in another activity with a group of students. There's also things we can't fund like individual holidays or trips with non-student groups.
Streamlined Application and Swift Review
Are you ready to take the leap? Apply for the Brighton Students' Union Participation Fund today and set your course towards personal growth and unforgettable memories. One distinctive feature of our application process is the meticulous review by a panel comprising SU staff, officers, and Sport Brighton experts. This panel reviews submissions as they arrive, ensuring that time-sensitive applications receive prompt attention.
Turning Dreams into Reality: The Allocation Process
For successful applicants, the cost of your activity will be transfered directly to the club, society or department that is organising the activity. We won't transfer you the money or give out cash. Whether it's full coverage or partial support, we're here to turn your aspirations into reality, every step of the way.
