Applying for a Grant

The Trustees for the Magdalen Hospital Trust meet twice a year, once in late May and once in late November.  The window for applications to be considered in the May meeting is from the 1st of March to the 31st of March; the window for applications for the November meeting is from the 1st of September to the 30th of September.  Applications will be considered on a 'first come first served' basis as we do have to limit the number of applications put forward to the Trustees.  Applicants that are selected to be put forward to the Trustees will be notified at the close of the application window.  If an application is considered potentially suitable for a grant but there are already too many applications for the next relevant Trustees' meeting, applicants may be asked to resubmit their application for consideration at the next application window.  Applications not selected to be put before the Trustees will be notified accordingly.
