How to apply

The Wolfson Foundation has a two stage application process. These pages explain the process and timing of making an application. Details of eligibility and what we fund are contained within the various funding programme pages. Please note that, under some funding programmes, applicants are asked to submit via partner organisations, and so the application process and deadlines may vary from those described here. Such cases are signposted within the relevant programme area pages.

We are committed to rigorous assessment in order to fund high quality projects. All applications undergo detailed internal review and assessment by external experts. As such, the time between submission of a Stage 1 application and a funding decision on a Stage 2 application will be a minimum of some five months (and may in some cases be substantially longer). As we do not make retrospective grants (i.e. your project will need to be ongoing at the time that it is considered by our Trustees), it is important to plan carefully the timing of your application.

The pages in this section provide an overview of the timing of the application process and what is required at each stage.
