In the run up to the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (‘COP26’), The University of Edinburgh is running ‘The Green Micro-grants’, a grants scheme for community projects with the natural environment and social impact at their heart.
Groups can apply for up to £1000 through their micro-grant scheme for small scale community activities. The purpose of the scheme is to provide micro-grants to community groups, charities or businesses for projects which aim to:
1. Improve their local natural environment
2. Have a positive social impact for local communities
The University of Edinburgh welcomes applications for projects or activities that will involve and benefit people living and/or working in the City of Edinburgh, Fife, West Lothian, Midlothian, East Lothian and the Scottish Borders.
Applications are welcome from not-for-profit organisations and social enterprises.
The funding is available until Fri 19 Aug, but you can apply at an point up to that date, and all applications will be reviewed by a panel.
