HEIF Central Fund Call Results

We received 10 applications for the recent HEIF Central Fund call with a total value of just under £90,000.  The available funding was £40,000.

Three projects were successful and will receive a combined allocation of £25,471.  There is also one project currently under discussion which, if approved, will take the allocated amount to £30,471.  This, of course, leaves around £9,500 available and discussions are taking place regarding how best to use this funding, given that it has to be spent by the end of June 2015.

Congratulations to the 3 successful applicants!

  • Ethan Maltby in the School of Music and Performing Arts, for his innovative project proposal which will see the creation of ‘The C3U Graduate Theatre Company’. We hope the forthcoming production of ‘The Sparkle Thief’ goes well!
  • Abby Foad in the Centre for Sport, Physical Education and Activity Research (SPEAR), for her project proposal that will see the creation of a Physical Literacy Assessment Toolkit. Potential routes to market were identified as licensing, commissioning, tendering and direct sale to schools/LEAs.
  • Kate Gee in the School of Psychology, Politics and Sociology whose innovative ‘Blue notes…’ project aims to create a sustainable arts intervention to improve student mental health. This will have numerous beneficial impacts, both internally and externally, but also aims to be sustainable through, for example, the eventual production of self-help/guidance material and training workshops.
