Roland Levinsky Memorial Fund

Looking for inspiration? Learn how previous students have benefitted from these awards.

The Roland Levinsky Memorial Fund offers current students who have completed their first year at University the opportunity to enhance their University experience through extra-curricular activities, despite any financial restrictions they may be experiencing. 

The fund was established in 2007 in memory of Vice-Chancellor, Professor Roland Levinsky, who was dedicated to the principle that individuals should be encouraged to achieve their full potential.

Awards of up to £1,500 enable you to take part in activities which could include anything from participation in a sports club or society, to undertaking a volunteering project overseas. Awards will often be granted to individuals who demonstrate the extent to which the award will benefit not only themselves, but also the wider community. The type of projects that have previously been supported include:

  • creative projects
  • field trips and internships
  • research expeditions
  • sports and societies
  • travel
  • volunteering and charity work.

Applications for the 2018 cycle of the Roland Levinsky Memorial Fund are now closed.


Applications for the 2019 cycle will open later this year.
