The Fund supports research, education and roadside improvement projects that promote advances in UK transport policy, design, management and practice through a grant.

Trustees favour proposals which have national, rather than local, significance and those which involve other funding partners. They welcome proposals and ideas for innovative topics and projects and, from time to time, they will identify areas of potential interest over on our News page.

How to apply for a grant:

Applications can be made at any time and the calendar below indicates the dates of future Trustee meetings, where applications will be considered.

Anyone considering applying for a grant must, in the first instance, contact the Secretary, with a short outline of their proposal, including the level of funding being sought to register their interest and obtain an application form.
