Grant start dates
How we work out your grant start date and what to do if you need to defer.
The proposed start date and award duration are set out in your award letter.
As outlined in Wellcome's grant conditions, you must start your award within 12 months of the date your award letter was issued.
Your grant will officially start when you appoint your first postholder.
Your official start date determines the grant end date. This won't change unless you ask us.
