Small, interesting funding streams

I was asked recently for any small funding pots I knew about that didn’t have loads of strings attached to them (for example, you didn’t have to be a registered charity).

I haven’t had direct experience with these, but they looked interesting –

The Awesome Foundation

The Pollination Project

(you can only apply to this if your project is sustainable and meets their ethical standards)

Helium Grant

I was also asked about funding for MA courses – and good news here – yes, you can get funding through a Master’s Loan.

Hopefully this is helpful, and have a lovely weekend! Sarah.
