Applications for ISSF funding (which require projects to have 50% matching funding from other, non Wellcome Trust sources) are considered by the ISSF Managers at their quarterly meetings (March/ April, June/ July, September & December each year)

Application Procedure:

PIs should discuss their project/ proposals with their Head of Department and approach the Head of School or other ISSF Manager representative before they are submitted for consideration at a quarterly meeting.

Projects will need to be costed to enable the ISSF managers to make a funding allocation.  Matched project funding details – and its source – will be required before funding can be released.

Applications should be submitted via the Schools as follows:

Clinical Medicine – contact Matt Burgess (School Finance Manager,

Biological Sciences – contact Michael Godfrey (School Finance Manager,

Papers are circulated to ISSF managers before the meeting, so please ensure you have begun your preparations sufficiently in advance of the appropriate ISSF Managers' meeting.
