The Diversity Fund  has a budget of £70,000 each year and provides small grants to initiatives aimed at furthering the University of Oxford’s commitment to equality and diversity in all arenas with the aim of delivering a lasting change in culture across the University. The fund is inviting bids for small grants for projects that might include:

  • Positive action initiatives and increasing visibility in support of under-represented groups.
  • Studies to enhance institutional understanding and learning around the barriers to the progression of under-represented groups.
  • Initiatives designed to disseminate and accelerate implementation of good practice, and that could contribute to our Equality strategy as set out in the Strategic Plan, institutional Athena SWAN and Race Equality Charter.
