Applying for a Grant

The Trustees for the Magdalen Hospital Trust meet twice a year, once in late May and once in late November.  Applications to be considered in the May meeting must be received by the Correspondent by the end of March; applications for the November meeting must be received by the end of September.  Applications which miss the application deadline but meet our criteria above, may be asked to resubmit their application for consideration at the following meeting.  Similarly, if an application is considered potentially suitable for a grant but there are already too many applications for either of the Trustees' meetings, applicants may be asked to resubmit their application for consideration at the next meeting.

You can download an Application Form from here either in Word or as a PDF file (click on the appropriate link).
