Employability Fund

The Employability Fund is a sum of money ring-fenced by the Students' Association for any affiliated society to host a careers- or employability-based event.

The money is awarded on a discretionary basis. The fund is administrated by the funding body, which consists of the DoSDA, Employability Officer, and Association Management Accountant.


  • The maximum award is £200. Additional funds can be applied for, but will require approval from the entire funding body.
  • Funding can be used for events, marketing, travel, or any further costs
  • Events supported by the fund must be open to all students, and follow the Association's Equality and Diversity Policy
  • Funding cannot be used to purchase alcohol
  • Original receipts/invoices must be provided for all purchases
  • Changes to an event after the fund is awarded may lead to changes or withdrawal of funding. You must therefore notify DoSDA@ of any changes, including date and location.
  • Funded events are expected to make use of Association facilities, except where these are not available or suitable.
  • Any member(s) awarded funding may be expected to attend meetings with the DoSDA at regular intervals before, during, and after the project, to monitor progress and offer support.
  • A written report will be due on completion of the project, with the deadline set by the DoSDA at the time a grant is awarded.


Apply via this form. You must be logged in to view the page.

You should apply at least 2 weeks before the event.
