EDI Funding Opportunities

We are opening the first-ever MAPS EDI Funding Call “Take bold action for inclusion.” The aim is to provide support to EDI initiatives that focus on developing or strengthening inclusive environments.

The MAPS EDI Strategic Plan from 2019-2022 aims to improve our study, research, teaching, and overall work environments, such that every student and staff member in the faculty can develop a sense of belonging and feel encouraged and supported to develop their full potential.

Funding EDI
In alignment with our MAPS EDI Strategic plan, we are opening the first ever MAPS EDI Funding Call “Take bold action for inclusion.” The aim is to provide support to EDI initiatives that focus on developing or strengthening inclusive environments for staff or students in the Faculty. We are planning to fund 10 projects for up to £3,000 each. The projects should address inclusivity regarding, but not limited to, disability, the LGBTQ+ community, gender, race and ethnicity, religion or belief, or socio-economic background.
