BUCS Funding


Want to take part in a BUCS competition or league? We have funding available!

To apply for funding for a competition, you'll need to complete a BUCS funding request form as far in advance to the competition as possible (we can't do anything if you're plannig to compete tomorrow)! Put as much information on the form as possible, including quotes, then your application will be discussed at the next Participation Sub Committee and decided whether funding is given.

For competition funding, you are able to apply for any costs associated with the competition as well as competition entry.

If you wish to apply for league funding, an application form will need to be completed (1 per team) and submitted with as much detail as possible by the 1st April in order to be taken into consideration for the following year.

If funding is not given this doesn't mean you can't compete, it just means that you would need to fund this yourself.
