How to get the final 10 percent of your grant funds

We will only release the final 10% of your grant funds when we receive your Final Expenditure Report.

Grants covered by the 10% retention rule 

The rule applies to all standard Wellcome grants including:

  • Investigator Awards
  • Equipment Grants
  • Fellowships
  • Studentships
  • Strategic Awards.

Exceptions 

The rule doesn't apply to grants where:

  • award payments are conditional on milestones
  • payments require specific Wellcome approval
  • a specific agreement has been made.

How to release the final 10% 

Your organisation must complete a Final Expenditure Report via Wellcome Trust Grant Tracker (WTGT).

The form will be available on WTGT when your grant reaches its end date.

Joint grants 

If you have a joint grant (where the funds for the project are awarded to two or more organisations), each organisation must complete a Final Expenditure Report. We will release the final 10% for each organisation once we have approved the report.
