Large project grants


Applicants interested in submitting a large project grant must contact the Grants Team and submit a brief Expression of Interest form to help us consider if the idea is one which the Charity might potentially fund.

This initial contact should take place at least 6 weeks before the relevant submission deadline. Applicants invited to complete a preliminary application will receive a link to our online application form, along with the endorsements document in advance of the relevant deadline.

All applications need to be costed by the JRMO.

Full applications are peer reviewed externally.

Key dates for the Academic Year 2018/2019 are outlined below:
