Applying for funds

Applications can be made at any time and the calendar below indicates the dates of future Trustee meetings where bids will be considered. Anyone considering applying to the Fund should, in the first instance, contact the Secretary at to register their interest.  There is no application form but all applicants are asked to complete a one-page summary for the convenience of the Trustees as part of their application (see guidance notes for further details).  A word version of the summary form is available on request from the Secretary.

Applications should be sent to the Fund’s Secretary. They must state clearly the purpose for which funding is sought, outlining the objects, relevance and the proposed methodology of the project including the names of the principal participants. The expected costs by category should be identified along with the project timetable. Where the project requires the contribution or participation of other parties their willingness to make the required contribution should be demonstrated. The applicant will need to demonstrate appropriate in depth knowledge of the subject of the application and familiarity with previous work in the field.

Applications should be clear and concise with the main proposal no more than three A4 pages; with supporting material appended as necessary. A digital version of the application should be included.  For further guidance you should view or download RJRF Guidance notes for applicants July16 (app1)

Potential applicants are advised to think their projects through carefully, ensure that they have carried out a meaningful review of the existing work, have a defined and practical methodology and give a clear indication of the potential application of the results of their work and how these would be disseminated.

The Secretary can be contacted as below.
