How to apply

Posted on

We understand that schools are not necessarily experts in writing grant applications and that teachers can be particularly time poor. The Charity’s application process is thorough but it is designed not to be too demanding or onerous. We operate a two stage application process, which is started by a proposal letter. If this letter is positively assessed, then you will be invited to submit a Stage Two Application Form. We do not send out Application Forms for our Main Grants or Small Grants Funds on request and they cannot be downloaded from this website. You should note that it takes at least six months for the application process to be completed, so please bear in mind when your project is due to take place and apply in plenty of time.

Application forms for the School Explorer Fund and the School Holiday Activity Fund are available from this website and requests under these Funds are assessed more regularly than the other grant funds.

You can also find some helpful information in our Tips & Hints section that is specifically for schools.
