Horizon Fund - Employability Award

The Horizon Fund was created in 2013, to help actualise the dreams of Staffordshire University students and to breakdown any financial barriers they may have. 

We receive donations from generous supporters of the University, who believe in our mission to transform lives and create better futures.

We know University can be expensive, and we also know that it is not just about the lectures and degree obtained. It is everything in between. The experiences, the trips, the networking, the industry connections and all the extra elements that make our students more employable - not to mention a step ahead of the competition!

These are just a few of the examples of how the Horizon Fund – Employability Award has helped students achieve more than they thought possible:  

  • Do you have a once in a lifetime opportunity, but finances are holding you back?  
  • Have you secured a job interview but cannot afford the cost of travel to get there?  
  • Do you need a suit for the interview, but cannot afford one? 
  • Publishing your first book/paper but the cost is too much? 

Eligibility Criteria

Please read the full terms and conditions before applying.

This Fund is only made possible due to the generous donations we receive, which we are extremely grateful for, and as such, we cannot guarantee that it will always be available, that your application will be successful or that you will receive 100% of the amount requested.

Do you want to help us fundraise to help generate more donations? Head to to find out more!  

If you are successful in your application, our donors will want to see examples of what the Employability Award has helped towards, so we will ask that you share a post evaluation write up of your experience as well as images/video or something visual that represents what this has meant to you. 

We wish you the best of luck, and hope you put your all into the application. Dig deep, show us your passion, and help make us #ProudToBeStaffs!
