We’ve spent the past few months reviewing our schemes and our application process and are delighted to say that we’ve re-opened to new applications on a phased basis today.  Thanks must go to all of the team here and our fantastic software providers Fluent Technology and our web design partner Ave Design Studio.

Grants for academic and clinical researchers
The maximum amount for which you can apply is £300k over three years.  Our two-stage application process is now managed via our new  online Grants Management Portal, for which you will need to register an account.  The first grant scheme which will be made available will be the Research project grant for which there will be a fund of £1 million available and we will open to new outline applications today, with a deadline of 25th August, 2017.

We will also be offering a further round of Research Training Fellowships and will open to applications in early October, 2017, with interviews being held in May, 2018.

Grants for community-based organisations
We will be offering three schemes for community-based organisations: a project scheme (up to £40k per grant), a small grants scheme (up to £5k per grant) to support capacity/capability-building activities and a scheme to support building and physical infrastructure projects (up to £100k per grant).   A single-stage application process will now be managed via our new  online Grants Management Portal, for which you will need to register an account. The first grant scheme which will be made available will be the Project grant and we will open to new applications on 28 July, 2017 (the link to the application form will become available on that date), with a deadline of 29th September, 2017.   We will open to applications to the capability development and building and physical infrastructure schemes on 8th January, 2018.  In the meantime, if you wish to take a look at the application forms to start preparing your submission, you may download pdf versions in the frequently asked questions section of the website.  We can, however, only accept applications via the online Portal during the published submission periods.

Application timetable and deadlines
The timetable for the opening of the various schemes, together with their application deadlines, is now available on the website.
We’re anxious to have your feedback on your experience of using the online application system and on the information we provide on the website – so do please get in touch. We’ll be delighted to hear from you.
