We consider and fund a large number of grants and awards through our wide portfolio of funding schemes. This section of the website provides data on the scale of our funding activities, and aims to answer many of the questions we are asked about the number and value of awards in our active grant portfolio, annual grant expenditure, and application numbers, award numbers and award rates.
Please note that these data are restricted to the activities we support through grant awards and exclude directly funded activities (including the Sanger Institute, Hilleman Laboratories and Wellcome Collection), programme-related investments and milestone-contingent awards. Full information on our funding each year is provided in our Annual Report and Financial Statements.
If you have any questions about these data, or if you would like further information, please contact our Grants Information Desk.
