Accepting a grant

How and when to accept a grant.

You must accept a grant on the Wellcome Funding platform before we can activate it. We won't pay any expenses until you accept the grant.

When to accept a grant 

You can accept a grant:

  • when you know when the grant will start
  • up to 12 months from the date of the award letter.

Information we ask you to provide 

When you accept a grant, you must:

  • check the grant details we have are correct
  • tell us the grant start date
  • confirm you agree to the terms and conditions set out in the award letter.

You can also provide your own organisation reference number.

Who can accept a grant 

If your grant is going to be administered by an organisation, they will accept your grant for you.

If your grant won't be administered by an organisation, or your organisation doesn't have an approver – someone who can submit accept Wellcome grants, for example, research office staff – you will need to accept the grant yourself through your organisation account.
