The principal of our funding rounds is to support the delivery of rugby activity across institutions.


The application criteria and process are as simple as possible to encourage applications and enable the distribution of allocated funds to institutions as quickly as possible, and may support activity with contributions to the following areas:


  • Coaching and refereeing qualifications

  • Equipment and kit

  • CPD ‘off the pitch’ such as mental health and inclusion

  • Marketing and promotion


The grant process is normally held twice a year, with a panel convened to allocate funds. Details for each funding round are promoted via the University Rugby Update, as well as via social media so be sure to check these regularly.
