Applicants are required to provide the following:

From this year, students are invited to apply via one of the following tracks for funding:

  1. Develop Yourself – for projects focusing primarily on personal development and challenge. This might include arts or cultural initiatives, activities focused on education and/or outreach or campus/community projects that have a positive impact on you and your proposed beneficiaries. Your application should:
      • include a detailed plan of action, timeline and proposed costs
      • outline the transferable skills that the project will help you to develop
      • describe how your project will support your future aspirations
  2. Develop Your Idea – for those looking to develop a new business venture or social enterprise idea and who are looking for proof of concept funding. Your application should:
      • include a detailed plan of action, timeline and proposed costs
      • provide evidence of market need/demand for your venture
      • describe how your enterprise idea is innovative, viable and sustainable

Please indicate on your application form which track you are applying for.

You may wish to look at an (PDF Document) example of a previous successful application. This is an example only and should not be used as a definitive guide. Each year a broad range of proposals are funded and applications are judged against each other - an application that succeeds in one year may not have been successful in other years.

The next deadline for applications is Friday 3rd March 2023.

The LRF Committee will meet to identify candidates for interview in the week beginning 13th March 2023.

The next round of interviews will be held in the weeks beginning 20th and 27th March 2023.
