Applying for funds

The Rees Jeffreys Road Fund is able to award grants and bursaries funded from the investment income generated by the endowment made by William Rees Jeffrey’s estate.

The Trustees welcome proposals for topics and projects for grant funding, and will from time to time commission projects directly.

The Trustees have a duty to ensure funds are disbursed in accordance with the Fund’s objects, subject to which they favour:

  • Research and pathfinder projects with potentially national (and international) application;
  • Applications involving shared funding from other partners;
  • Applications for part funding of academic studies or for programmes with a clear relevance to the Fund’s objects.

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 must, in the first instance, contact the Secretary at to register their interest with a short outline of their proposal including the level of funding being sought.

Applications should be clear and concise with the main proposal no more than three A4 pages; with supporting material appended as necessary.  All applicants are asked in addition to complete a one-page summary for the convenience of the Trustees as part of their application.  A word version of the summary form is available on request from the Secretary.  For further guidance you should view or download RJRF Guidance notes for applicantsJuly19
