About the Sports and Wellbeing Fund

The Sports and Wellbeing Fund was established in 2019 through the generous support of an alumni member. Its purpose is:

  • To support the activities of Somerville students across a wide variety of sports
  • To promote physical activity
  • To develop and support the wellbeing of the College community.


Enrolled students can apply for this funding to support membership and participation in University wide sports and teams. Students who are on suspension, report or probation, visiting students and associate students are not eligible. It is not possible to use the fund to support membership and participation in sports and teams outside the University. 

Award levels

Up to £150 over the length of the course. There is limited funding available so it is not always possible to make awards at the level advertised.

Application process

Students should complete the application form and email it to the by Monday 23rd January. They should also include evidence of any estimated or actual costs.


Decisions will be made by Somerville College Travel and Special Project Grants Committee.


Successful applicants will be expected to submit a brief report outlining how they have used the award.
