Our guidelines are broad so inevitably we receive many more applications than we can fund. In practice, around one in ten applicants receives a grant.

Coronavirus information for applications

While we are still open for applications we are unlikely to meet our usual targets around assessment over the next month or so. If you have applied to us recently please bear with us – we will get back to you when we can. If you are thinking of applying to us you are welcome to do so, but please apply to us by email at applications@tudortrust.org.uk, and not by post.

Our policy is to encourage all those thinking of applying to give us a call and have a chat with our information team about their needs. However, we are currently receiving a large number of calls, so please bear with us if the line is busy.

Keep an eye on our Coronavirus updates page for all the latest.

How to apply

Please make sure that you’ve read What we do before making a start on your application so that you can find out more about what kind of grants we make and check your eligibility. Alternatively, you can download our funding guidelines for the full picture.

You can find full details of what you need to send us in your application in Making a first-stage proposal.

You can apply at any time – Tudor makes grants on a rolling programme and there are no deadlines.

How likely are you to receive a grant?

Tudor has broad and open guidelines so inevitably we receive many more applications than we can fund. Last year we received 2,931 applications. In practice, only around one in ten applications receives a grant.

This is why we have a two-stage application process. We realise that putting together a full funding application is demanding and time consuming so we ask all applicants to complete a brief first-stage proposal instead.

If you reach the second stage your chance of success will be much higher. But a grant isn’t guaranteed: a few applications drop out before they reach the final committee stage and not all applications discussed by committee members will get a grant.
