Alumni Fund grants can be made for any project which can be shown to enhance the University of Bath experience across the wider student community. These can include supporting new innovations for SU Sport Clubs. So if you need an injection of cash for your club then look no further than the University of Bath Alumni Fund.

Since 2010, the Alumni Fund has awarded over £50,000 to our sports clubs. Including £2,000 towards start up kit for the Taekwondo Club in 2012, £550 to the Trampoline Club for new competition leotards, and money to fund new electronic fencing equipment for the Fencing Club. They have also granted money for a gazebo that SU Sport can hire out to its' members for functions and events, as well as many other projects.
