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.
How likely are you to receive a grant?
Tudor’s guidelines are broad so inevitably we receive many more applications than we can fund. In practice, only around one in ten applicants receives a grant.
We know that putting together a full funding application places heavy demands on your time and resources, so we ask all applicants to complete a brief first-stage proposal instead.
Please understand that your proposal may be turned down even if your work is valuable and interesting. The trustees have to make hard decisions. Resources are limited and many excellent applications don’t get beyond the first stage. We read all first-stage proposals carefully, but because of the large number of applications we receive we can’t provide individual feedback on why we are not taking your proposal through to the second stage.
If you reach the second stage your chance of success will be much higher. But a grant isn’t guaranteed; some applications fall away before they reach the final committee stage and not all applications discussed at that committee will get a grant.
