Holiday Grants - How to Apply


Unlike our other programmes, applications for the Holiday Grant Programme are submitted via an online application process. We strongly recommend that you use Internet Explorer when completing the form.

To submit your application, please follow the steps below.

Step 1. Read our Guidelines for the Holiday Grant Programme carefully to make sure you are eligible to apply

Once you are happy that your organisation and the project you are seeking funding for is eligible, follow the ‘Make an Application’ link at the bottom of this page.

Step 2. Create an Account so you can apply

You will be asked to set up a new account or sign in to an existing account.

If you are setting up a new account, you will receive a welcome email, confirming your account details and providing your personalised link. We suggest that you retain a copy of this email for your records.

Step 3. Eligibility quiz

In order to help applicants to identify whether they fit the criteria we have an eligibility quiz which you must answer before you can access the form. This is to help ensure that you do not waste your time applying if you are not eligible for support. Please answer all the questions and submit your response.

If your responses show that your proposal will not meet our guidelines, you will not be able to make an application.

If your responses show that your proposal will meet our guidelines, you will be able to access our Holiday Grants form to make an application.

Step 4. Completing your application

Please provide all relevant information in your application. You must answer all the questions and provide the attachments requested.

To prevent formatting problems, avoid using bullet points and always copy and paste text into Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (Mac) before adding to the application form.

You can save your incomplete application and return to it later, simply by clicking ‘Save & Finish Later’. You will then receive an email confirming that your application has been saved, that includes your tracking number and a copy of your current application for your records.

To return to your incomplete application, you can follow your personalised link that was provided in your welcome email. Otherwise, you can use the ‘Return To Existing Application’ link at the bottom of this page.

For your convenience, you can access PDF versions of the application form at the bottom of this page.  Please note that this is for guidance only, and you must submit your application via the online application process. If you are unable to use our online process, please contact us.

Step 5. Submitting your application

Once you have completed your application, please click ‘Review & Submit’, this allows you to read through the application in full and send it through to us. If you are happy with the contents of the application and are ready to send it to us, please click the ‘Submit’ button. Please note, once you have submitted your application, you will not be able to change it.

Once you have submitted your application form you will receive a confirmation email from us to let you know it is being processed.

If you need to return to your application at any time, please log into your online grant profile. To see your submitted application, click the ‘Show’ dropdown box and choose ‘Submitted Applications’.
