UCL Social Enterprise Grants
UCL is committed to using its research expertise to address problems facing today's world. We want to prepare and support our students to be able to do the same.
UCL's new Social Enterprise Grants scheme offers grants of up to £4k to UCL students to allow them to tackle a social problem head-on.
For example, you might apply to the Social Enterprise Grant scheme to fund:
- A large-scale, not-for-profit event or project which supports a local community or group
- A student conference of other activity which raises awareness of a social or environmental issue
- A one-off project in which you put your discipline knowledge to good use to make a contribution to society
- The establishment of a UCL branch of a national or international society with a social enterpreneurship remit.
UCL already supports students who want to start their own businesses (through UCL Advances) or to set up their own small-scale volunteering projects (through the VSU's Innovations programme).
Social Enterprise Grants are intended for projects and activities which are not eligible for funding from either of these two schemes.
Applications will be considered at any point during the academic year, subject to available funds.
