We aim to give you a decision within 10-12 weeks of submitting your complete application.

As part of the assessment process we may wish to speak to you by telephone or Zoom and may, on occasion, arrange a visit with you. Please don't worry if we ask to speak with you in this way! These meetings are to help us get a fuller picture of your proposal and to give you a chance to talk about your work as it is not always easy to do it justice on a written application. 

If your application is declined we would hope to be able to provide feedback if you wish - just get in touch.
