Apply for a Grant

Before applying for a grant, please read our guidelines.

The application process for Small Grants is as follows:

  1. Submit an eligibility form (should take no more than 5 minutes)
  2. The eligibility form will be reviewed by Goldsmiths’ grants staff and an initial assessment made. If deemed eligible, a link to an application form will be sent and you will have two weeks to complete this. This time specification helps us manage the flow of applications, however if you have trouble completing it in the allocated time let us know. 

  3. If deemed ineligible, an email will be sent informing you and terminating the application at this stage. We cannot respond to every query on eligibility so please do read the guidelines very carefully before applying. If, after reading everything you still believe you are eligible you can contact us and we will endeavour to give you feedback. 

Please note: 

  • Feedback on unsuccessful applications. Due to the high volume of applications we receive and low capacity, we are unable to provide specific feedback when informing you of the decision made. However, we will try to provide this verbally if and when requested. We understand that feedback can be very useful in order to improve and learn, which is why we will be publishing a ‘good application guide’ to help with this. 
  • The application process for large grants is detailed under Charity Guidelines.
