2012 Grants budget
This page sets out the breakdown of the budget in terms of the specific projects it is being used to support. It is a working document that will evolve over time.
The projected breakdown of the budget is £3,000 for microgrants, and £12,000 for macrogrants, to be allocated over the course of the year.
Microgrants are grants of between £5 and £250. This process has been running since mid-2010, and has resulted in several successful past activities as well as a number of ongoing activities.
The following microgrants have been funded from this budget:
|Brighton Hackathon 2011||£50||Closing off microgrant from 2011 (£120 covered in 2011 budget)|
|Oxford Law Competition||£100|
|Gibbons Stamp Monthly Digital Archive 1890 - 2009||£200|
|RMS Titanic research in England||£75|
|RMS Titanic research in Northern Ireland||£300||Approved by the Board|
|Core Contest (prizes)||£250|
Macrogrants are grants of between £250 and £2,000. These need board approval before going ahead. It is expected that we will approve grants totaling £12,000 over the course of the year. The process for this is currently being developed at Macrogrants (legacy process are at Activities and Grants).
