Race Equality at Cambridge

 

The University Diversity Fund (UDF) provides grants of up to £1500 and is open to applications from students and staff.

The UDF aims to support initiatives across the University that contribute to raising awareness of issues related to equality and diversity, challenge discrimination and inequalities, increase the representation of under-represented groups, and facilitate implementation of good practice.

University staff and students are welcome to apply if they have a project that meets the above criteria and seeks to contribute to the University’s equality and diversity strategy and priorities for action in the area of ‘race’.

Application process

If you have a project that meets the conditions of the UDF and you would like to apply, please read the Further Information, fill in the Application Form and send it to equality@admin.cam.ac.uk.

“One very specific aspect of…openness is being inclusive, and open to diversity in all its forms – diversity of interests and beliefs, of gender, of religion, of sexual identity, of ethnicity, of physical ability.”

Vice-Chancellor Professor Stephen Toope
