Innovation Initiative Grants Deadline

Does your club or society need help with funding? Do you have a great idea for a project or need funds to support your research?

The next round off Innovation Initiative Grants opens on Friday 25 September 2015. The deadline for the submission of applications is 12 noon on Thursday 29 October 2015.​

Innovation Initiative Grants (IIGs) are financed by alumni of the University, via donations to the Edinburgh Fund, and could provide the kick start that you need. IIGs promote new initiatives in teaching, research and student support, and applications are open to permanent members of staff and current students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) as well as EUSA, EUSA societies, the Sports Union and recognised sports clubs.
