What you need to know once your grant has been awarded, including grant conditions and the grant start certificate.

Conditions and policies

Starting your grant

You should complete a Grant Start Certificate through Wellcome Trust Grant Tracker (WTGT).

You can submit this:

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

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, eg research office staff – you will need to complete the Grant Start Certificate.
