Grant Holder FAQs

Grant Holder FAQs

When will I receive my grant?

When we write to inform you that your application has been successful and you have been awarded a grant, we will include details of how to claim your award. The claiming process is also explained in the Grant holders section of this site. 

All grants are paid via bank transfer to UK registered charities. Please note that grants are paid in arrears, on receipt of paid invoices providing evidence that the work we have funded has been (or is in the process of being) completed. Note that we cannot pay against work that was already completed before our award was offered.
How often can I reapply?

Generally, we ask that you wait some five years between the date an award is offered (not paid) and submitting a further application. For the Secondary Education programme, you should wait seven years before submitting a further application. Please note that we do not consider further grants for a project that we have already supported, so any further applications would need to be for a different project. 

Universities are able to apply more frequently, provided applications are for projects in different departments.
How should I acknowledge my grant?

We ask that our name is associated with the project. We may sometimes agree the naming of a specific area. Further details my be found on the press and publicity page in the Grant holders section of this site.
