£500-£3,000 up for grabs – if you have an idea that could make a difference to people’s lives, the local community or the environment

Do you have an idea that could make a difference to people’s lives, the local community or the environment?

If so, we still have grants available to help you get your social enterprise off the ground – but don’t delay, the grants are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and we’re getting lots of interest, so get in touch with us as soon as possible!

If you want to explore an idea that could have a social impact, apply for one of our ‘Try It’ grants of up to £500. Or if your idea is more developed, you can apply for a ‘Do It’ grant of up to £3,000.

You can apply for funding if you are a current undergraduate, postgraduate, member of staff or recent graduate of UEA (no more than six months after graduation).

If you would like to apply or speak to someone about your idea, please contact info.enterprise@uea.ac.uk. Alternatively, visit www.uea.ac.uk/careers/students/workexperience/enterprise for more information.

Don’t miss out – the deadline for applications is 5pm Friday 28 June, but we advise applying sooner.

Don’t forget that if you’re an international student completing an undergraduate, masters, PhD or MBA programme in 2013 and you have a great business idea, you can apply for one of 10 Tier 1 (Graduate Entrepreneur) visas being sponsored by UEA.
