The Collaborative Fund

The Collaborative Fund provides staff with the opportunity to enhance research-intensive learning and teaching practices and demonstrate clear benefits to students at the University of Birmingham. This strand has a focus on working in partnership with one or more of the following groups:

  • Students
  • Colleagues from other disciplines
  • External stakeholders


We invite applications for projects that produce outputs that demonstrate clear benefits to students across the University. There are no prescribed themes in this strand, but applicants might consider projects that generate creative and practical ways of addressing, for example, the student voice, enhancing community, compassionate pedagogy, transition into and through university, student partnership working and co-creation.

Funding requests for this strand will normally be expected to be around £5-8k.
