Lord Rootes Fund Application Form

*Please complete and submit the form below, attaching your video, project proposal and financial plan in the relevant section.*


Applications for 2021/22 are now OPEN!

*Applicant (or lead applicant for groups)*
Confirmation of Fund Regulation 1(d): (required)
Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply only for the minimum level of funding they need to carry out the project, rather than to apply automatically for the maximum potentially available.

If successful, applicants will be required to comply with the Lord Rootes Fund Regulations. One of the conditions within the Regulations is that successful applicants will normally be paid 80% of their award before starting their project. Award holders must undertake to supply a comprehensive report of their project and the remaining 20% of the grant will be paid only if the Committee judges that the report is satisfactory.

Please submit the following as part of your application and attach them both here:

  1. A full project proposal and financial plan
  2. A short video about your project. The requirements for the video are:
  • video length not exceeding 120 seconds (2 minutes)
  • file size not exceeding 250 megabytes
  • file format is either mp4, mov, mpeg, mpg or avi
  • the quality and content of your proposal will be considered, rather than the production quality of the sound and video.

If you have any problems submitting your attachments, please contact

*Please note*: The referee should be a member of staff with whom you have discussed the project before applying. Please ask your referee to send their reference to the Lord Rootes Fund Secretary via email -
