Grant start certificate

How and when to complete and submit a grant start certificate.

You must send us your grant start certificate to activate your grant. We won't pay any expenses until we receive this.

You should complete a grant start certificate through Wellcome Trust Grant Tracker (WTGT).

You can submit this:

  • once you know when your grant will start
  • up to 12 months from the date of your award letter.

If your grant is going to be administered by an organisation, they will complete the grant start certificate for you.

If your grant won't be administered by an organisation, or your organisation doesn't have an approver – someone who can submit grant start certificates to Wellcome, for example, research office staff – you will need to complete the grant start certificate.
