Opportunity Fund

The Opportunity Fund provides bursaries to individuals, clubs, societies and other groups of Warwick students to help fund extra-curricular activities. It is 100% funded by donations.

The fund is about enhancing students’ experience through extra-curricular projects. Bursaries are awarded to a wide range of areas including arts, music, sports and volunteering. These activities provide the memories and lifelong skills that will help shape individuals and will give Warwick graduates the edge in the competitive graduate job market.

Last year we received over 66 applications and funded 23 projects, including:

• WMG Warwick Racing - Warwick Racing Track Testing
• Warwick Medics Ladies Football Club - Development of Warwick Medics Ladies Football Club

“On behalf of all the members of the Warwick Medics Ladies Football club, we would like to thank the Warwick Benefactors for their generous donations. The Opportunity fund has made our project possible and will aid us in promoting women’s football further in the future!”

“On behalf of the whole of the society I would like to thank all those that made the bursary possible. It has allowed us to significantly step up the quality of our live broadcasts of campus events and will in the future allow us to broadcast more events and to expose our members to professional standard equipment. With this new equipment we hope to continue to grow and cover more events on campus every year including Varsity and the SU elections week.”warwick tv
