What We Don’t Fund – Exclusions
Grants are not usually made for the following:
- Running costs of established organisations or ongoing projects.
- Contributions towards the overall costs of a project (the Trust normally provides grants for salary costs, although occasionally it funds other project expenses).
- Conference attendance.
- Projects proposed indirectly through other ‘umbrella’ organisations.
- Projects from large well-funded charities.
- Personal education fees or fees for taught courses – unless the proposal comes from a senior researcher who is seeking funds for research which could be undertaken by post-graduate student.
- Completion of a project or PhD initiated by other bodies. (If you are a student requiring help with fees, please see the News & Links page)
- Educational or ‘gap-year’ projects for young people.
- Projects where the Trust would not be a major supporter, with the Trust normally preferring to fund at least 50% of the total project costs. Applying for funding elsewhere will not prejudice an application.
Grants are never made for the following:
- Directly to individuals (grants are only awarded through UK charitable organisations for specific projects).
- Donations to general appeals of any kind.
- The purchase, erection or conversion of buildings, or other capital costs.
- University overhead charges.
