Green Micro-grants worth up to £1,000 are available for local projects that improve the environment or have a positive social impact.

Community groups, small charities and other organisations can apply for one of the new micro-grants offered by the University.

The Green Micro-grants are an offshoot from the University’s popular Community Grants scheme, which has awarded almost £400,000 to local projects since 2017.

Groups can apply for up to £1,000 for small scale projects that will help improve their local natural environment and have a positive social impact for their community.

With the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) coming to Scotland this autumn, it is important to support change locally as well as globally. If you are involved with an organisation who could put £1,000 towards a project in your community, see the full details of the scheme or contact: local@ed.ac.uk

Organisations can apply now and micro-grants will be available until Friday 19 August, or until all funds have been allocated.

Please note, this grant scheme is only open to groups outside of the University. While we welcome projects that involve collaboration with the University and our staff and students, it must be an external organisation that applies for the funding.
