This fund is intended to support anyone who has lost work at the University of Birmingham due to coronavirus-related cuts to precarious contracts, including Postgraduate Teaching Assistants, Teaching Fellows, and academic-related staff whose contracts or hours have been cut. We are accepting applications, in the first instance, throughout the month of September 2020.
To apply for the fund, you'll need to fill out the form here: https://forms.gle/qnMA4vhaZ257e7NE7
At the end of the application period, we'll work out how much we can offer each applicant on the basis of how much they need and how much money we've raised. We'll then invite applicants to "submit an expense" via the Open Collective platform, which will allow us to transfer money straightforwardly, without asking for bank details or anything like that. Please don't "submit an expense" until we've sent you an email asking you to do so.
