WHY DO WE FUND RESEARCH?
We do this because we are passionately interested. We care for the plight of those affected, and we are insatiably curious about these topics.
We really like to be kept abreast of developments with our research projects. This includes being invited to conferences and being sent publications in advance. We really encourage grant-holders to do this, and find that it keeps the relationships between us running in a positive and happy way. Please address this in your proposal, and remember it when you get going!
Process:In the first instance, please email your application to us at email@example.com as an attachment. Please see below for what we ask you to include in this.
Applications are initially assessed according to general scientific quality and in terms of The Waterloo Foundation’s scientific strategy and interests as laid out here. Applications successful at this stage are then peer reviewed. Applicants unsuccessful at this stage will be notified promptly. Please see below for the annual submission schedule for the different topics.
Our peer-review process involves external reviewers and internal reviewers. External reviewers are carried out by practising scientists or clinicians, who are expert in the area. Our internal reviews are carried out by our Chair of Trustees and Child Development Fund Manager, both of whom have backgrounds in scientific research. Applicants will have the opportunity to respond to points raised by reviewers, which reviewers can then comment on. Consultation will be taken where necessary, and then recommendations will be made to our Trustees about which projects to fund. In parallel, applicants complete a monitoring framework ready for use if we decide to fund a project.
All application deadlines are at midnight on a Sunday. We aim to make the final decision at our Trustees’ meeting around four months later.

Levels of funding are typically up to £50,000 per research project. We support a wide range of projects, differing by research question, methodology, and existing funding. For example, we might support pilot data collection, to help you strengthen later proposals for substantial research grants from other, larger research funders, and clear pipelines for future work strengthen such proposals. We might support studentships, although generally do so as a matched-funder, and we might support an entire research project. We appreciate cost-effectiveness, and occasions where a small contribution from us yields much.
