Take action on sustainable development with funding from The Seed Grant

​​The Seed Grant project is designed to help the DMU community to take action on sustainable development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

The grants are for situations where a little money and support can get a project started. Projects led by staff, students and alumni are eligible for funding. Activities can take place at DMU or in the wider community.

A total of £2000 is available in 2019/20 and the maximum application is for £1000. The Seed Grants scheme aims to support between four and seven projects, with a typical budget between £150 and £500.

The deadline for applications is Friday 31st January 2020 at 5pm, with decisions made by one week later. Projects can be delivered between February and June 2020 inclusive.

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to discuss their ideas with DMU’s sustainability team in advance (see Guidance) to get feedback. The form below can be used for initial enquiries, or applicants can email sustainability@dmu.ac.uk.
