Project Grant Applications

The covid pandemic is unprecedented and has affected all medical research charities and Rosetrees is no exception. From the outset, we moved very quickly and issued a call to pump-prime research into covid. We’re now funding 20 projects with our partners and this will increase.  

There has been significant disruption to our funded non-covid research projects, which has placed an additional administrative burden on our team. 

Therefore we have reluctantly taken the decision to postpone our large project grant round scheduled to open in December 2020. It is still our intention to hold this round later in 2021. The opening and closing date will be confirmed later this year and details will be posted on our website. The small project grant round has also been postponed.

Review process

All applications will be assessed and scored by a scientific panel. Triage scoring criteria include the track record of the team, feasibility of the research and the potential for translation. Triage will be predominantly based on information provided in the application form so please ensure that you provide as much relevant information as possible. All suitable applications will be sent for external peer review. Shortlisted candidates will be then considered by our research committee at which point the applications will be graded according to peer review, with the highest quality projects being selected.
