Take action on sustainable development with funding from The Seed Grant

​​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 £2500 was available in 2020/21 and the maximum application was for £1000.

The deadline for applications was Sunday 31st January 2021 at 11.59pm for projects to be delivered between February and June 2021 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.
