At NUSU, we want all Newcastle University students to have the opportunity to campaign on the student issues that matter to you. However, we know that finance, plus knowing where to start with your campaign, can be a barrier to putting your idea into action.
Therefore, each year we have a pot of money set aside for student campaigns that any Newcastle University student can apply for, from which we will allocate a maximum of £300 for each successful campaign bid.
To apply, all you need to do is complete the Campaigns Fund application form in the ‘Apply Now’ section. We will then consider your application based on the following:
- Does you campaign raise awareness of a specific issue affecting students at Newcastle University?
- Is there a specific positive change that you are looking to make at Newcastle University?
Once you submit your application, both the NUSU Welfare & Equality Officer and the NUSU Campaigns & Democracy Co-ordinator will consider your application. They will aim to get back in touch to let you know whether your application has been successful within two weeks of submission. If your application is successful, they will invite you to NUSU for an initial campaign support meeting.
In addition to providing funding, we also offer a wide range of support to help you get the most out of your campaign ideas. To see how we can support your campaign, head to the ‘Campaigns Support’ section.
If you would like to see examples of campaigns we have previously supported through the Campaigns Fund, please head to the ‘Previous Campaigns’ section.
