Chancellor's Fund Awards
The University of Northampton has awarded several students and staff members funding through the Chancellor's Fund.
The Chancellor's Fund was set up to help support students; staff and volunteers at the University launch new initiatives, seek additional training, embark on research projects or help ameliorate student hardships.
