The Aspire Awards

Aspire Awards Application 2018/19


What could you do with £1,000?

At the University of Southampton, we believe that your education should be about more than just your subject of study.

Sometimes our students have grand ideas for life-enhancing projects that they'd love to carry out, if only they had the opportunity.

To help our undergraduates to realize their dreams, the university has created the Aspire Awards.

There are up to 20 awards of £1,000 each that will be given out to those projects our judges consider to be both realistic and deserving.


All undergraduate students are invited to download an application and submit their project ideas before Sunday 31 March 2019.


Winners will be chosen based upon the projects we believe will most successfully;

Aspire Award Winner 2017/18

"The purpose of the placement was to conduct my own research and collect data. Additionally I took on an intern role curating archaeological material, conducted field work at other important sites, and participated in outreach activities. Furthermore I was privileged to take part in a rock art survey with the Rock Art Research Institute, hiking up the mountains in Eastern Cape in search of traditional bushmen rock art found in rock shelters scattered across the landscape. Aspire allowed me to make the most of my time in South Africa without worrying. The whole experience was incredible. The hope is that the project will be the first step in forging a relationship between Southampton and Wits so that future students may benefit from the fantastic experience that such a collaboration offers"
