Coronavirus (COVID-19): information for grant applicants and grant holders

Lloyd’s Register Foundation’s London office is closed, but we are all still working hard to engineer a safer world. The health and safety of our staff and grant community is very important to us and we wish you well during this difficult time.

The funding schemes and calls below remain open for applications.

We are aware that the current travel and social contact restrictions could have a direct impact on our grant holders and on agreed timetables for project deliverables.

The challenges differ for various countries and the options for managing the situation could have implications for reporting, deliverables, timescale and resourcing. We will do our best to support you to minimise the impact on our grants wherever possible. 

If you are concerned about the potential impact on your grant, please contact us at the earliest opportunity so that we can discuss and agree a plan that provides the best chance for achieving the intended outcomes and impact.

Our new process for grant applications

 
At Lloyd’s Register Foundation we direct most of our grant funding but recognise that we must retain the flexibility to fund unexpected and new ideas that help to fulfil our mission.

Therefore, we have removed the option to submit full proposals (except, from time to time, in response to calls in specific subject areas) and have introduced an outline proposal screening process for spotting the truly amazing ideas that surpass our existing plans.

All of our decisions are made collectively and not by one individual, and it is up to the applicant to convince us, in publicly understandable language within the form, of the significance of the work for the Foundation.

Once you've registered, at 'Select a scheme to start an application', select Outline proposal.

If an application passes the outline proposal stage, we invest our time in helping build full proposals that have the greatest chance of success. In this way we focus our resources on those proposals that we feel are best suited to the Foundation’s unique credentials and lead to the greatest possible impact.
