The pod fund is available to all student cavers who are members of
OUCC. The aim of the fund is to help students who are passionate about
caving with the club.
You can apply to the fund at any time. It is anticipated that the
fund will primarily be used to help pay for personal caving gear (e.g.
oversuits, undersuits, helmets and lights, SRT kits), or to contribute to the
costs of going on a caving expedition, or getting specialist caving training.
However, you can apply to the fund for assistance with any reasonable caving
related costs. The fund can be used to help cover the costs of OUCC caving
weekends, but please note that the fund is not intended to provide financial
support for people on their first caving weekends, and is not normally used to
support visiting students.
We expect that grants will normally be for up to a maximum of £200 and
that within a year between 1 and 4 grants will be awarded, but there is some
flexibility in this. You can apply to the fund more than once - it is
unlikely that individuals will receive more than £200 within a year except in
situations of particular financial hardship.
You need to fill out a short application form (Not yet available: email Lou Maurice or Simon Goddard, who administer the fund.)
