The Inspiring Futures Programme is an exciting fundraising programme, launched by former Chancellor Gabby Logan in 2016, during Leeds Trinity's University's 50th anniversary year. The programme financially supports students who want to study abroad or compete in elite-level sport alongside their studies, and recent graduates who want to develop their own business. There are three strands of funding:
- Study Abroad Fund – to complete a semester abroad, outside of Europe
- Sporting Excellence Fund – to compete at a national or international level of sport
- Enterprise Fund – to develop an existing business or freelancing career
The first Inspiring Futures grants were awarded during the 2017-18 academic year with 24 students and graduates receiving more than £18,000 to support them in achieving their goals.
