Funding for student led projects

The Student Impact Fund supports students from Santander partner universities across the UK to address the challenges, issues and priorities that they've identified.

Santander Universities has funding to support students who turn to the crowd to make great ideas happen.

The Student Impact Fund has been created to build on our support for Higher Education.  Since 2007 we've donated over £60million to UK partner universities and have helped tens of thousands of students and staff from universities to prosper.

Together we can address what matters to students in the UK today.

This fund is now closed. You may be eligible for other extra funding for your crowdfunding project.
