The Wellcome Trust Funding Opportunities

Posted on Updated on

The Wellcome Trust have a few funding opportunities with deadlines for the end of January;

A reminder that the deadlines for the next rounds of Wellcome Trust funding are coming up:
24th January – Development Awards (Broadcast, Games and Film) – up to £10,000
31st January – People Awards – up to £30,000
31st January  Co-Production Awards  £30,000 to £300,000
The awards support broadcast, games and film projects that engage the audience with contemporary or historical biomedical science in an accessible way.
Development Awards (Broadcast, Games and Film) are for up to £10k to support the development of broadcast proposals and games in any genre.  The awards should enable ideas to be developed into high impact, well-researched proposals to help secure a UK platform and production funding.
People Awards are for up to £30k and can support television programmes and series, films, games, websites and cross-platform projects.  This includes production funding.
 
Co-Production Awards range from £30,000 – £300,000. These support broadcast, games and film projects that bring science stories to the heart of pure entertainment. To be eligible, projects must have a secured distribution platform prior to applying and the Co-Production Award must only part finance the project, i.e. at least matching funding should already be secured.
 
The January deadline for Co-Production Awards is for Expressions of Interest.  Details can be found on our website:
If you are successful at this stage, you will be invited to submit a full application. You will also be invited for interview (approximately six weeks after the Expression of Interest deadline).
 
NB: Please note applications are now made via an eGrants online system.  Registration of your company on the system takes two days so we would advise you to register now.

Even if it’s not for you we’d be very grateful if you would let your
colleagues and social media contacts know about this opportunity – the
deadline for applications to the European Space Agency is the 4th
August 2013 so there isn’t much time, but it is a quick application
form to fill in. Let me know if you have any questions and perhaps you’ll even pledge to join us on the moon today!
