Apply for funding

The way that you apply for alumni-funded grants changed on Monday 4 March 2019.

Alumni Grants (formerly Alumni Foundation grants) are available to help you:

  • get extra funding for your club or society
  • get a great idea off the ground
  • present your research at a conference.

Alumni Grants are funded by donations from thousands of alumni and friends of the University to enhance the student experience.

Your applications are assessed by the Alumni Grants group, which includes academic staff, as well as representatives from Bristol's Alumni Association and the Students' Union. The Committee meets bi-annually to consider applications.

All applications and enquiries are now made through the Student Funding Office, contactable at
