Statement on international sanctions

We may not be able to fund a grant if the grant holder, anyone associated with the grant, or the grant activities, are:

While we conduct routine sanction checks as part of our grant process, we expect grant applicants and grant holders to notify us if they suspect that international sanctions may affect their award. We can then work towards best supporting them while complying with international sanctions.

We expect Wellcome-funded researchers and their host organisations to take responsibility for complying with all applicable laws and ensuring that any person working on the grant activities (including any collaborator, sponsor, supervisor, consultant, sub-awardee, contractor or supplier) is not the subject of targeted sanctions.
