Santander launch £100,000 Student Impact Fund

Santander Universities have now launched a new fund to help entrepreneurial students realise their business ideas. To kick-start the initiative, 10 students have the chance to bespoke Crowdfunding coaching and £1,000 towards their project’s funding target.

To enter the competition, all students need to do is visit Crowdfunder on Facebook and in less than 100 words, tell them about their idea and the impact it will have, then confirm their entry on the dedicated Crowdfunder page.  

Please be aware that entries for this first opportunity marking the Fund’s launch will close very soon, on 26 February.

However, students at Loughborough can still apply to Santander’s Student Impact Fund which will support a minimum of 50 projects by providing up to 50% (up to £2,000) of the total amount of money they need to raise so long as the project helps people to:

•             Create or run or participate in a student society or team

•             Support a charitable or social cause

•             Run a university, community or student focused project or event
