Funding for joint academic / community projects

  • Do you have a good idea for a community-university partnership project?
  • Do your ideas involve working with communities, projects or academics local to University of Brighton campuses?
  • Do you need some seed funding to kick-start co-working?

Cupp seed funding aims to support the development of partnerships between academic staff and community organisations that will work together on a topic of mutual interest.  This fund supports work across our campus areas of Brighton, Eastbourne & Hastings.

Up to £5000 is available per project and Cupp can offer you support to develop partnerships, project ideas and your application.  For further information visit the Cupp website, where you can download a copy of the guidance notes and learn more about eligibility and the criteria – or call 01273 643004 to talk to one of the team about your ideas.

The deadline for applications is the 23rd May 2016, and successful projects would be expected to start by October 2016.

You need to call Cupp to discuss your ideas before putting in an application.
