Volunteering Impact Fund
The Volunteering Impact Fund (VIF) was established to help you run the best projects you can, for your volunteers, beneficiaries and the wider community. Only projects that are local and hands-on volunteering activities will be granted funding. You can apply for funding for any amount up to £500 to run creative, positive and effective volunteering projects. However, additional funding may be considered for exceptional projects. This fund is for Volunteering Groups, Sports Clubs, Societies, and University of Edinburgh School/Departments.
The Global Fund provides small grants ranging from £30 to £200 to support student-led activities, events and projects on campus. The Fund aims to:
- Celebrate the diversity of cultures at the University of Edinburgh
- Promote integration between home and international students
- Encourage conversations on global issues and support global citizenship
- Create an international community on campus
Social Enterprise Fund
The Start-Up Fund is administered by the Activities Department and provides discretionary funding to brand-new Social Enterprise Groups or projects. The fund is intended for early stage start-ups that require financial support to kick start their activities, with the objective of reaching a point where the activity is self-sustaining and generates its own income.

Do you believe the Students' Association should make a statement of principle on an issue relating to students? Do you have an idea for a campaign or project that you think EUSA should run? Do you need funding for your own campaign?
If yes, then you should submit a proposal to Student Council!
