The Fund is designed to support action directed towards changing the culture of faculties, and the Division as a whole. Delivering change in a pandemic has particular challenges, and the Fund has been designed to have light-touch application and reporting processes.
Successful bids will submit a short report to the Division, and will also provide a short presentation (eg a word document, PowerPoint or message) to the Humanities E&D Open Platform on Teams.
Bids that use funding as ‘seed funding’ to secure further funds, or to pilot activities that faculties can learn from, are warmly received. The Fund is part of a concerted effort at both Divisional and faculty level to address systemic and historic inequalities: cultural change comes slowly and is built on solid foundations, engages more than it divides and shares successes and challenges.
