The selection of the right grant for your project needs is one of the most important factors in securing funding. A number of grant bodies recommend that you only apply to those bodies that match your project. To assist in this process, it is recommended that you contact the funding body about your application prior to submission. The majority of the funding bodies included here provide additional information to assist applicants by providing application guidelines or answers to Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on their websites.
