The Barry Amiel and Norman Melburn Trust welcomes funding applications from individuals or institutions for projects that fall within the funding remit of the Trust. Applications for funding awards are considered twice a year when the trustees meet in January and July. Applications for major funding awards (£6,000 or over) are only considered once a year – at the January meeting. Deadlines for submission of applications can be up to two months before the meetings.

The next submission deadline will be announced on this page. Please do not send award applications until the deadline is announced.

If you wish to make an application for funds, please download the application form. All applications must be submitted by the deadline both in hard copy and via the upload facility indicated below. Please read both the guidelines and trust objectives carefully before applying. Any applications that do not meet the guidelines will not be accepted.
