Disabled applicants

No one should face barriers when applying for Wellcome funding. We’re committed to making sure our application process is accessible to everyone.

If you are disabled or have a chronic health condition, we can offer different types of support. For example, we can:

  • supply application forms and funding information in accessible formats, eg large print, braille or audio
  • support you in completing application forms, eg by paying for a support worker
  • provide help so that you can attend interviews, eg by funding a British Sign Language interpreter.

For support during the application process, email our information officers at grantenquiries@wellcome.ac.uk or call +44 (0)20 7611 5757.

Please contact us as early as possible in the application process.

If you’re awarded Wellcome funding, we can offer different types of support during your grant.
