Grants Committee

The FfWG Grants Committee is composed of up to 10 members, the majority of whom are active academics who are experts in their own field. The Chair of the committee endeavours to ensure a balance of disciplines between the Arts and the Sciences among its members.

All members of the committee are approved by the Board of Governors. Members are invited to serve a term of 3 years in the first instance and may be invited to serve a second term.

The committee meets twice a year, in July for the Foundation Grants and in November for the last round in the calendar year of Emergency Grants.

The earlier two rounds of Emergency Grants in March and June and the Theodora Bosanquet Bursaries are assessed electronically. For such purposes close communications are maintained between the various members of the committee. The decisions taken are approved by the Chair of the Grants Committee.

In all cases, the decision of FfWG is final. It will not enter into any subsequent correspondence.
