Grant funding data

We consider and fund a large number of grants and awards through our wide portfolio of funding schemes.

This page provides data on the scale of our funding activities. It aims to answer many of the questions we're asked about:

  • the grants we have funded over time
  • application and award numbers, award rates and amounts awarded.

Full information about our funding each year is in our Annual Report and Financial Statements.
