  • Student Impact Fund

    Do you have an idea for a project that would have a positive social or environmental impact? Then we’d love to hear from you! You can get support and apply for up to £500 through the University’s Student Impact Fund.

    The Student Impact Fund gives financial support to current Oxford Brookes students; both individuals and groups can apply. 

    About your project

    It is up to you what your project is about - your idea, your passion; the main criteria is that it should have a positive impact on your local community and/or your fellow students. Other key requirements are that your project:

    • is a one-off project

    • needs no more than £500 funding

    • is extra-curricular (so not part of your course)

    • is not directly connected to a society that already receives funding

    • is in line with the University's guiding principles

    Funding is intended for the delivery of your project; it will not cover: pay for personnel, course fees or travel costs if your project is abroad e.g. flights.

    Have a look at some of the previous projects and please read the ‘how to apply' page before submitting your application. 


    There are three funding rounds per year; the deadlines for the 2019/20 academic year are:

    • Wednesday 6 November 2019

    • Wednesday 12 February 2020

    • Wednesday 15 April 2020
