The Newton Trust is working with the Public Engagement team in the University’s Office of External Affairs and Communications to fund University of Cambridge student societies to provide valuable and innovative community volunteering opportunities to University of Cambridge students.
The Newton Trust programme aims to support the activity of student volunteers from the University by providing grants to student societies which organise such opportunities for students. The programme aims to benefit the personal and career development of the student volunteers, the community in which the students are volunteering and the University and Colleges. The Fund is intended as a seed corn fund for new or developing activity, rather than a source of recurrent funding. The Trust is particularly keen to fund UK-based activities.
In each round, grants of up to £500 per society will be made. Applications for smaller amounts are particularly welcomed. In exceptional circumstances, grants of up to £1,000 may be made. The maximum funds given to any one society will not exceed £1,000 per academic year (October to September). Societies can apply more than once, up to a maximum value of £1,000 per academic year.
The current Newton Trust funding scheme is under review for the future. In the meantime, applicants are now invited for the final round of funding in Easter term. Information and application forms are available.
