Further Funding for Student-Run Academic Activities and Events

Academic Grants

Students are encouraged to organise their own academic-related events and activities in Green Templeton College. Limited funding (not normally exceeding £1,000 per activity) is available to assist with such events.

Applications should include:

  • Details of the proposed activity (type of event, proposed date(s), expected attendance, any speakers approached/booked, etc.)
  • How it will benefit Green Templeton students
  • Any Green Templeton fellows or other senior college members who will be involved or who support the activity
  • A budget indicating the overall cost (this can be estimated if you are in the early planning stages)
  • The amount of funding being requested from the college
  • Any other funding already received or expected from other sources.

Students wishing to hold events should ensure that they have contacted the Conference and Events Manager to discuss availability of facilities and potential dates before making an application.

There is no application form. Applications will normally be considered on a termly basis by the Senior Tutor and approved by the Academic Committee. Applications should be sent to Ruth Loseby, Academic Projects Manager, by Friday of Week 2 of the term in which the request is to be considered. It may be possible for requests to be considered between committee meetings if necessary; contact Ruth to discuss this. Ruth can also be contacted if you have any queries about the grants.

Funding will not be given from this source for personal academic needs such as conference attendance. You should use your Learning Grant allowance or apply for Competitive Conference and Fieldwork funding

Annual Disbursements Fund

*Applications for the GTC Annual Fund 2019 have now closed*

Through the generosity of donors to Green Templeton, the Annual Disbursements Fund can provide grants for academic-related activities (for example, student academic events and initiatives, including professional development) and support for college life (for example, sports, societies and improvements to college facilities).

Bids are accepted from any current student and from staff with direct responsibility for students’ academic needs and well-being.

What types of bids for funding are eligible?

A request could range from a small, one-off event to funding or part-funding to set up a larger, ongoing project.

Examples of bids which have previously received funding include:

  • Supplementary funding for the Human Welfare Conference and Personal & Professional Development Programme
  • The Refugee Health Conference
  • Funding for college sports clubs to attend external competitions
  • Improvements to the gardens, including refurbishment of the tennis pavilion
  • Replacement sound system for the Stables Bar.

Funding will be released as reimbursement on production of relevant receipts.
