What funding or bursaries can I apply for?

Sport England and other organisations have a variety of funding pots available to university clubs to support the development of an environment in which more people are physically active and play sport.

Small Grants

Sport England's Small Grants Fund uses Lottery funding to make awards of £300 - £10,000 to help more people play sport.

Take a look at the Small Grants pages on Sport England's website where you can find a step-by-step guide through submitting an application and other guidance documents to help you tailor your application to give it the best likelihood of success.
