If successful, applicants will be required to comply with the Lord Rootes Memorial Fund Regulations. One of the conditions within the Regulations is that successful applicants will normally be paid 80% of their award following the Committee meeting in March. Award holders must undertake to supply a comprehensive report of their project by the last Friday in November of the year of the award. The remaining 20% of the grant will be paid only if the Committee judges at its meeting in the following March that the report is satisfactory.
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.
