Information on how you can get support to apply.
Promote this scheme at your next team meeting and discuss in each 121 with your members of staff. You could make this the theme of your next team meeting and get people to scope out a range of ideas which can be submitted. You may even want to fund some of these locally if they are not successful.
Investing in Success is available to everyone at the University including teaching, researchers, managers, professional and support staff regardless of grade.
No, you will need to give your informal approval for individual and/or team applications, but any member of your team can submit an application either individually or on behalf of the team
Yes, this is possible. Simply record these details on the application.

Sadly not, this scheme is open to all paid employees but cannot be extended to temporary, honorary or casual employees.
The Investing in Success scheme asks for you to obtain your managers informal approval for your application, but does not require you to spend any funds or obtain any external or internal approval. The Investing in Success scheme cannot guarantee to refund any expenses incurred prior to a successful award being made.
No, the funds must be spent or be lost by the end of October 2018.
Sadly not, due to the number of expected applications and the fairly tight timescale for spending the funds, all decisions are final.
The scheme will not guarantee any spends made before awards are granted. The usual University of Manchester policies and procedures apply in all cases.
