Project funding

If your project needs some money for things like resources, expenses, training or event costs, there are two KCLSU funds you can apply to for financial support:

King’s Community Fund

The King’s Community fund, is there to support ideas and projects aimed at improving your King’s community, or enabling you to be part of something positive with other students. Made possible by donations from King’s alumni, the fund is available to activity groups, clubs, representatives or individuals. You can bid for between £750 and £10,000 for each project. It’s there to help make an idea happen!

Applications should:

  • Enhance the student experience
  • Actively help others or further the community at King’s
  • Promote educational advancement
  • Encourage students to actively help the community

Applications run from Monday 29th October – Friday 16th November. Download the guidelines for more information, and click here to apply, or contact activities@kclsu.org if you have any questions.


Widening Participation (WP) Fund

The WP fund is for any King’s students or student groups who would like to run a WP Outreach Project. You can apply to the fund by filling out the application form and returning it before midday on the Wednesday 5 December.

You can apply for up to £500 of funding to get your project going. Before applying to the fund it is a good idea to check out the Widening Participation section of the site and ensuring your project meets the WP criteria. You can also check out some previous projects as well as WP Project Guidelines. If you have any questions about the fund or your WP Project Idea please contact the WP Coordinator.

Fundraising

You can also raise money for your project yourself by running a fundraiser like a bake sale, club night, quiz or dance show. Check out the fundraising page for more information.
