How & when to apply

Applications must all be made through our Online Grants Application Form.

All applications are reviewed by the Grants Manager and Director. Applications that meet the criteria and pass this initial review are then reviewed by the Grants Committee which normally meets three times a year. If your Grant Application is approved by the Grants Committee and is more than £20,000, the proposal will need to be reviewed by the BFSS Council before it is approved.   The schedule is as below, though may be subject to change without notice:
