Summer 2020 funding update
27 March 2020: A decision on the Summer 2020 funding round has been slightly delayed. Due to COVID-19, the Independent Panel did not meet in person this week so the evaluation of applications is currently taking place via online communication (we're pretty flexible like that!). We hope to be able to notify all applicants of the results very soon. Thank you for your understanding, and please take care at this time.
