eGrants: online application

During 2015 we are launching a new grants system that will replace eGrants, our current electronic application system, as the means for submitting online applications. Our Word form applications will also be replaced.

We will start introducing this system in May 2015. During this transition, it is vital that you create, prepare and submit your application using the correct system; which system to use will depend on the scheme and the application deadline date. Please check scheme-specific guidelines on the appropriate scheme web page to understand which is the right system for you to use. Alternatively you can contact our Grants Information Desk on 020 7611 5757 or by email: egrants.support@wellcome.ac.uk.

The eGrants system enables applicants to apply for grants online. The system provides workflow to guide the applications through the necessary steps towards final submission to the Wellcome Trust.

The benefits of our eGrants system include:

  • clear workflow
  • clear sign-off process through the host organisation
  • reduced administration at the Trust.

Most applicants for grants in Biomedical Science, Medical Humanities and Public Engagement are required to submit their applications via our eGrants system. However, Word forms are still available for preliminary applications for the majority of the Trust’s funding schemes.

Please refer to the relevant funding scheme information on the Wellcome Trust website for details of alternative application procedures.

Applicants who have limited or unreliable access to the internet should email eGrants Support - eGrants.Support@wellcome.ac.uk - to request a Word form.
