Summer Funding

Every summer we provide funding for student groups ahead of the new academic year. 

This summer all groups will receive funding based on their risk status:

Risk Level

Amount of Funding

Risk determined by...

Low Risk


Awarded to all groups unless deemed medium or high risk. Aimed at groups who are in a good financial position, are likely to bounce back well next term and the funding will help with promotional materials or membership drive

Medium Risk


Given to groups who are in a poor financial situation but are likely to be able to bounce back well next term, with minimal outgoing costs or are likely to have good member engagement. 

High Risk


Given to groups who are in a significantly poor financial situation, have large outgoing costs in term one and might struggle with attracting members.

You will find out what funding you have been awarded when filling out your budget forms for the upcoming year over the summer. Check out this Freshdesk article for more information on filling out your budget forms.

New Group Fund

When a new group has been ratified by SSO, they will receive funding of £100 into their account to act as seed funding to kick-start their activity.
