First Stage of the Application Process

Please submit an initial outline of up to 500 words with an approximate monetary figure to be applied for. The principle investigator should send the outline using the form below. This will allow us to estimate how we can allocate the small fund we have to the best effect over several projects.

Second Stage of the Application Process

Authors of selected project summaries will be contacted directly and invited to complete stage 2 of the application process online.


The first stage application of 500 words should be submitted by the end of April 2018. You will be informed of the decision of the trustees as soon after that date as possible and hopefully by mid May.

The shortlisted applicants should complete the full application by the end of July 2018.
