What is it?
As part of the Student Mental Health Agreement project, we are delighted to be able to offer a small grant scheme this year to support the piloting of a new activity, campaign, or the trial of a new idea. We have a small pot of money and will be offering a maximum of £250 to 10 Scottish institutions.
Who can apply?
Our new small grant scheme is open to any institution/students’ association who is currently taking part in the Student Mental Health Agreement project. To help you keep your idea and SMHA as in sync as possible, those leading on the Student Mental Health Agreement should apply for the grant. We will only accept one application per institution. Your application will not be means tested.
What will we fund?
Do you want to pilot a new activity? A new campaign? Are you looking to trial a new idea? This idea should be in support of one of your aims on your Student Mental Health Agreement and you will be asked to highlight which aim it compliments. .
We want to support you!
How will the grants be awarded?
A panel consisting of Think Positive and members of the Project Advisory Group will review the applications and provide feedback to all applications. The panel will individually vote on the applications, then get together to discuss how they have scored the applications.
Applications are open – click here to apply. Applications will close on 31st January 2022, when we’ll share your proposals with the panel. Recipients will be announced in February 2022.
