ARTISTS, CHARITIES, GROUPS and ORGANISATIONS who have been approved as eligible and given a Login should make a Grant application through the on-line forms on the APPLICATIONS pages.  Groups of Artists working together will need individual Logins even if applying as a Group.

Grant applications are considered at trustee meetings in March, June, September and December, and the deadlne for applications is the final day of the preceding month.

The deadline for the next round of applications is 28 February 2019.  Applicants may expect to hear the trustees' decisions on their grants by the end of March, and these grants may be used from April.  (Successful Artists should look at the notes under the Awareded Grants tab for more details.)

Currently the maximum number of days' grant which is available to any one Artist is normally 12.  The maximum value of the grant is set at £80 per day (including VAT, if applicable).

Please note that bookings made before a Grant has been formally offered are the responsibility of the Artist.  Full details may be found from the Artists and Charities pages.

Please note that Reports on previous stays, which are required before making a subsequent further Grant Application, must be sent by email (and attachment if relevant) to the Trust.  It is no longer possible to submit Reports through this website.


New applicant ARTISTS and CHARITIES and other organisations will need first to make an Eligibility Submission through the APPLICATIONS pages.

Please read all the information on the ARTISTS or CHARITIES pages before contacting the Trust or making a submission.  

Responses on eligibility are usually sent within a month.  Please note, however, that artists, charities or organisations 1] not matching our Grants criteria, or 2] supplying incomplete information, may not receive a reply to their submission.
