Student Initiative

Funding students wanting to turn enterprising ideas into reality.

The Student Initiative Programme offers expertise, support and funding to our students, recent graduates and societies with social, community or cultural projects.

The initiative can help new ideas become projects. In turn this encourages our students to develop their wider skill set; gaining valuable experience whilst adding to their core degree learning that in turn helps with their future employability and career aspirations.

Examples of projects funded by Alumni and supporter donations range from pop-up cultural projects to shows at Edinburgh Fringe.
