We welcome the opportunity to talk to you about making an application, assisting you with your current grant, or any other matter.

Please select from the appropriate Enquiry Type in the dropdown menu below and provide the requested information so that we can direct your enquiry to the responsible staff member.

Please note we have no further grant rounds open in 2021. 

If your enquiry is about a new grant proposal, make sure you are familiar with our Programs and Focus Areas. The mission of your organisation and purpose of your project must align with the Focus Area.

We have very limited funding in comparison to the number of enquiries we receive. The Grants Team will shortlist requests with the strongest fit to our funding priorities to progress to application. Enquiries that do not strongly align with our areas of interest will not be considered.

We endeavour to respond to all other enquiries within 36 hours. Please be aware, however, that at different times of the year, we experience a high volume of enquiries and it may take a little longer getting back to you.

Please note, HMSTrust does not deal directly with university researchers. All approaches must be made through the university’s Advancement Office.

We also value feedback from you about any part of your experience of the grantmaking process, including using this website, making an application, clarity of guidelines and other documents, or any interaction with the Trust, which will help us to become better grantmakers.
