Upcoming Funding and Grant Opportunities for Nurses

There are a number of exciting funding and grant opportunities for nurses. We will update this list as new opportunities are released.

Burdett Trust – Small Grants Programme

Under this programme, grant funding will range from £2,000 to £8,000. Grants will be for one-off sums; no repeat or multi-year funding will be made. Grants can be paid in advance of expenditure being required, but all funds must be fully spent for the agreed purpose within nine months of receipt or returned to the Trust.

Applicants are asked to fill in an application form online via the Trust’s website. There is no closing date in operation. Applications will be received and assessed continually during the year and the Trust aims to process grants within six weeks of receipt, although on occasion the process may take longer.
