International Representation Fund

What is the International Representation Fund?

The International Rep Fund is in place to financially support students who are representing their nation in an international event/competition. You can use the money to help towards transport, accommodation, entry fees and any other costs that are associated with the event.

What is the International Rep Fund not for?

The International Rep Fund cannot be used to purchase equipment that will personally benefit the athlete outside of the competition or event. The fund also doesn’t support costs associated with trials or selection days. You can apply for up to £500 per academic year. This can be split across a number of events but cannot exceed this amount. There is a limit of £1000 per club per event that can be allocated. This is likely to be shared across all applicants.

How do I make an International Rep Fund Bid?

International Rep Fund applications can be found HERE.

Funding bids are reviewed at the end of each term but can be submitted at any point. You are able to apply for either an upcoming event/competition or an event/competition which has passed. When completing your application please provide as much information as possible including any supporting documents you may have e.g. a confirmation letter of your place in that event. If you fail to provide supporting evidence this may affect the success of application. Please send your applications to – you will receive feedback once the term comes to an end.

Who do I speak to for advice?

Society Emergency Support Fund

Warwick Students' Union recognises that unexpected financial challenges can arise for societies. To help your society thrive, we offer the Society Emergency Support Fund. This fund provides one-time grants to societies facing financial difficulties that threaten and significantly impact their ability to function. This fund is for supporting essential existing activities facing financial barriers and not for expanding existing activities.

If your society is facing financial difficulties or simply would like a meeting about their finances, please get in contact with the Student Activities Team ( who are more than willing to discuss ways to make your society more financially sustainable.

This fund is for:

  • Unexpected and unavoidable expenses incurred since budgeting in Term 3
  • Societies who are in financial difficulty (you will be expected to provide a valid explanation as to why)
  • Inability to afford necessary adjustments to make your activities accessible (particularly for students with disabilities)
  • Societies who will be unable to continue into the next academic year without financial support

Please note:

  • Funds are limited, and decisions are made fairly with justification
  • Additional information or evidence may be requested during the application process
  • This fund is not for expanding existing activities, but for supporting essential activities facing financial barriers
Applications for the Emergency Support Fund close at midday on Friday, 8th March (Week 9). Link to survey
