Student groups will not normally qualify for funding from this fund unless the activity is deemed to be mainly of benefit to the community.
Unsuccessful and successful applicants can reapply.
All applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. A decision to fund a particular project does not necessarily mean that a project of that nature will automatically be supported in the future. Similarly, a decision not to fund a particular project does not mean that no such projects will ever be supported in the future.
