UKPHS Grant Scheme Deadline 12th May 2021

The long awaited UK Government funding for Health Partnerships was finally activated early this year, managed by THET (The Tropical Health and Education Trust) who provide huge support and encouragement for any existing or new partnership. Of most interest to Wales are the small grants of up to £50,000 for projects of 12-18 months, open to partnerships with any LMIC country.

The opportunity to apply for funding will close on May 12th 2021.

Core Eligibility All those considering applying should carefully read the eligibility and funding criteria contained in the Call for Applications and Q&A document as these may differ from previous THET grant streams.

This grants round will accept applications from both new and established partnerships, including those that have an existing UKPHS grant, but applicants should read carefully the guidelines around the differences in application process for the different partnership models.
