Strategic investments

Strategic investments are time-limited investments to support national priorities in Scotland’s colleges and universities. We have set aside a strategic funding budget of £14.9 million for colleges and £42.9 million for universities in AY 2018-19. This will allow SFC to meet all current strategic funding commitments.


Reporting on strategic investments

We ask colleges and universities that receive our strategic investment funding to tell us about their achievements and use of funding - see the Reporting on strategic investments page.
