Pregnancy outcomes for mothers and babies have worsened during the Covid-19 pandemic, according to a review led by St George’s Professor Asma Khalil.
In 2020, St George’s, University of London introduced a Black History Month fund which aims to support the delivery of a range of events, activities and projects relating to black history. This fund, and the activities relating to it, will run throughout the year, not only during October which is Black History Month.
The fund is open to both students and staff, including staff-student partnerships. Calls for funding will be communicated at various points throughout the year in January, March, June and August. Applicants should use the Black History Month Funding Proposal Form to request funding.
Separate to this funding, there is also a Black History Month Working Group which meets monthly to discuss ideas and plans for events, activities and projects of this kind and fosters collaboration between staff and students. This group is open for any staff and students to join. Staff and students do not have to be part of the Black History Month Working Group to apply for this funding.
Requests for funding should be made using the Black History Month Funding Proposal Form
Proposals should be sent to Liz Grand (Diversity and Inclusion Adviser) firstname.lastname@example.org, who will then share these with the review panel.
A funding review panel will meet shortly after each funding call deadline to review the submissions against the aims of the fund. Approval of funding will be made based on how and whether the proposed event, activity or project meets the aims of the fund.

The rationale for the amount of funding requested will also be reviewed; proposals must outline what the funding will be used for and include costings to enable the panel to accurately review this.
The panel will review and approve proposals received against the set criteria and will report these to Vanessa Ho (Dean for Equality, Diversity and Inclusion).
The Panel will communicate outcomes directly to applicants within two weeks of the closing date for each call for funding round.
Activities, events and projects supported by this fund must align with the aims of the fund:
In addition, recipients of the funding are required to share a brief outline of and feedback from their event, activity or project after completion. These will be collated and shared to showcase usage of the fund, demonstrate its value and to drive further engagement.
