With just over two weeks to go until the deadline for applications, we thought we should we should highlight some key information for anyone looking to apply to the fund.
The deadline for applications to both strands is 5pm on Friday 1 February 2013.
Submitting your application – reminders
- Alongside your application form, you also need to send us a copy of your latest approved accounts.
- If your organisation is unincorporated, you will also have to send us your governing document (e.g. constitution).
- If you are applying to both strands, make sure to submit a separate form for each strand.
- Make sure to fully complete and check the budget tables in question 4.4. Check that your totals add up, that you have include costs for both years of funding (if appropriate), and that it is clear what costs are being requested from this fund. If you are unsure what to include here, we are happy to offer advice.
Minor updates to application form
Following your feedback, we have made some minor updates to the application form. It now includes increased space in question 4.1 (to allow full use of the word limits) and a slight amendment to the wording of question 1.2. If you had problems fitting in your answers to question 4.1, you can download the latest version from our website.
Don’t worry if you have already completed your application on an earlier version of the form – we will still accept this.
We are continuing to update our Ask BIG site with answers to common questions about the Fund, and you can access it here: http://ask.biglotteryfund.org.uk/help/scotland/third-sector-fund/
