The Colt Foundation, an occupational and environmental health charity, gives applicants considerable leeway
- Project Grants operate in responsive mode but must be within the remit of environmental and occupational health research.
- The application form is unstructured, which makes clear writing crucially important.
- Novelty and impact are the most important criteria.
- Even though the foundation is a specialist funder, applications must be comprehensible to interested non-specialists who may be on the panel.
The Colt Foundation considers applications twice a year for its Project Grants, which support research on the health, safety, comfort and wellbeing of people at work, and the impacts of industrial activities and pollutants on the health of the public. The next deadline is 22 August.
