Clubs & Societies Fund

Selwyn Clubs and Societies can apply to the JCR for funding at any point throughout the term. We encourage captains and presidents to use these payments to help widen participation and improve wellbeing for  their current and prospective members.
Please note that the JCR can only provide funding up-front to a  dedicated Society bank account. If your society does not have one, we would be happy to offer reimbursements if proof of purchase can be provided.
Don’t hesitate to contact our clubs and societies officer if you have any questions about accessing the fund.
Both methods of funding can be applied to through the following form: https://forms.gle/RCPN4kbiEKXK6H1b6

The JCR Disabled Students' Fund has a cap of £40 per student per term.  

Examples of potential claims include: adaptive clothing, disability-related apparatus and accessibility software.  The fund may also be used for any other disability or illness-related expense (including medications).

No questions will be asked and no medical evidence or proof of disability will be required to claim from the fund.

This form is completely anonymous and the only JCR Officer with access to the information you submit will be the JCR Disabled Students' Officer.  The JCR Treasurer will then transfer the money for your claim to your bank account.  Feel free to contact jcrdisabilities@sel.cam.ac.uk with any questions about the fund.
