The Warwick Innovation Fund

Made possible through alumni and donor support

We know that our Warwick community is constantly coming up with new ideas and exciting innovations. We also know that many ideas need funding to become a reality.

Each year, forward thinking individuals apply for project funding. The Student Union reviews these projects for sustainability, project viability, and impact. The Innovation Fund is then used to invest in these new projects shaped to support the ever changing needs of students and the local community.

Warwick receives thousands of donations from alumni, friends and supporters each year and the Innovation Fund is just one example of how alumni and donors are actively supporting programmes that will transform lives.
