The Award

The Cycle Friendly Campus Award offers guidance and recognition for institutions who are working to improve their campuses to increase cycling.

The Award was developed in partnership with Scottish colleges and universities and reflect proven solutions to common barriers. 

 

Cycle Friendly Campus Development Fund

What is the fund?

The Cycle Friendly Campus Development Fund is designed to support Scottish colleges and universities and to take a leading role in increasing the number of journeys by bike. 
 
Capital projects which are focused on improving cycling facilities and physical infrastructure – such as cycle parking, signage, changing facilities - are the key focus on this funding opportunity.

 

How much is available?

It is expected that Cycling Scotland will award individual grants of between £5,000 and £25,000. Applications for less than £5,000 may still be considered if it can be evidenced that the project is likely to have a sufficient impact on cycling rates.

 

Who is eligible?

The Cycle Friendly Campus Development Fund is open to all Scottish colleges and universities (and associated organisations) who are actively working to promote cycling as a sustainable travel choice.

Projects must be focused on campuses located in Scotland.
