Medical research grants

Medical research grants

The Trust seeks to support medical research projects in Cambridgeshire, usually in the range of £10,000 up to a maximum of £250,000. Applications must be received by 30 November in each annual round. The Trust aims to benefit a broad range of projects over time. Grants must benefit charitable or non-profit making organisations, not individuals. Grants must be significant in the context of the project and are ‘one-off’ for that particular project. There is no recurrent award to support the ongoing costs of a project.

The Trust considers that one of it primary goals is to develop young or newly-established researchers, and to help them to generate data for more substantial bids to larger grant-giving bodies. We are especially interested in projects with a clear clinical impact, or that can deliver transformational change or increase inter-disciplinary working.  

Grants are awarded at the Trust's discretion to selected registered charities, institutions and causes. Its reasoning for decisions cannot be discussed with applicants.
