Application Process 

As a result of consultation with the Cambridge University Student Sports Advisory Group (CUSSAG) in 2017-18, there were three substantive changes to the process of allocation of grants and resources to University Sports Clubs.

  • The application process and grant allocation decisions shall be completed before the end the academic year.
  • More specific guidance is given, outlining the funding priorities for grant awards.
  • There is greater transparency in how decisions are made, and by whom.

As a result of the same consultation, it was also agreed that the setting of criteria within the application process would be student-led through CUSSAG, with the assessment of the application being led by professional staff.

For 2020-21, the Sports Club grant and resource application process shall once again take place via the University of Cambridge Sport Moodle course page: The electronic application form can be found under the ‘Grant and Resource Application’ section, and you are encouraged to save your application regularly when completing so as to avoid losing any work.

If you require access to Moodle to complete your application, or need technical assistance, please contact Lucy McGennity
