- The “Grow it” fund is to help grow an established project (founded by Oxford Scholastica alumni), which has already seen results. Grants from this fund are worth up to £1000
- The “Support it” fund is for projects not set up by alumni, but that they’re dedicated to supporting. Grants from this fund are worth up to £250
