FBMH Social Responsibility – new projects and funding opportunities
Members of the Faculty Social Responsibility (SR) Team were recently invited by Professor Mahesh Nirmalan, Vice-Dean for SR to bid for funding to support socially responsible graduates via innovative SR enhancements to the curriculum. Applicants could apply for up to £2000 to facilitate students to be encouraged to think how their enthusiasm for their subject could make a difference beyond the immediate demands of their course. Further funding is still available for both calls; the deadline for the second round of SR in the Curriculum Funding is Friday 31 March 2017.
A rolling decision-making process (no deadlines) has been agreed for the Engaging our communities fund, please note – all monies must be spent by 31 July 2017.
Enquiries can be sent to Hawys.Williams@manchester.ac.uk, in the first instance.
