Take action on sustainable development with funding from The SeeD Grant

Call for 2023/24 is now happening!

​​The SeeD Grant project is designed to help the DMU community 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 £4500 is available in 2023/24 for sustainability related projects and initiatives and the maximum application is for £1000. This will be distributed into two rounds of funding.

Please submit your applications before the deadlines on:

Round 1 applications: 11:59am on Wednesday 6th December 2023;

Round 2 applications: 11:59am on Wednesday 24th January 2024.
