The small projects fund aims to provide funding across CHASE institutions to put on activities that support the aims and objectives of the network. We have a limited amount of funding, and will consider bids of up to £500 for each project or event. This may include but is not limited to: events, small exhibitions, external speakers, representing the network at events or conferences, reading or discussion groups, research, seed funding for bigger proposals (larger conferences, research etc), wellbeing initiatives, social events. If you are unsure if your project meets the criteria please get in touch.
You can read about the last round of funding awards here.
Things we can’t fund: anything that does not fit within the aims of network, anything illegal, only standard class travel will be approved.
