How to apply

Applicants interested in small project grant must contact the Grants Team and submit a brief Expression of Interest to help us consider if the proposal is something which the Charity will potentially fund. At this stage no full costing will be needed.

Please note that research funded by this scheme is usually for projects which will generate preliminary data which can then be used to support a larger application to a major funding body.A small project research grant WILL fund consumables and small equipment. It WILL NOT fund salaries, large equipment, publication costs, travel or conference fees.

If we invite you to complete an application youwill receive a link to our online application form, along with the relevant endorsement documents.

At this stage, your projects should be fully costed by the appropriate function as follows:

  • Research projects (irrespective of where the applicant is employed) -  The JRMO.  
  • Enhancement in service delivery/community engagement projects  - Barts Health staff should contact their finance manager.  Please note that all applications for single items of equipment over £5,000 must be endorsed by the Barts Health NHS Trust Capital Finance Team.
