Student Education Catalyst Fund

This fund is currently closed for applications. We hope to be able to offer funding again soon.

The LITE Student Education Catalyst Fund supports staff and student innovation in education across the University of Leeds. Both staff and students can apply for the fund, which provides a small project grant of £1,000 to help boost student education across the University.

Grants can be spent on travel, research assistant time, or catering, for example.

Project outputs will be evaluated and disseminated internally and externally by grant holders to develop the practice, pedagogy and reputation of student education at Leeds.

Collaborative projects and those from teams covering more than one School of Faculty are particularly welcome.

As are staff-led projects should include a contribution from the student body in an advisory or partnership role whereas student -led projects may also include staff of the University in an advisory or partnership role but must have a named member of staff who can advise LITE whether the project aligns with the needs of the school or service.

Applicants should discuss project ideas with heads of school/service prior to application and, if successful, LITE will confirm that project has its support.

Student-led projects may not use the funding to support credit -bearing activity, such as modules they are enrolled in.
