We are not currently accepting new applications as we are in the process of transitioning to a new grants system. Click Here for more information.  I would also recommend that you sign up to our Grants Newsletter to keep up to date with any development and be the first to hear about the re-launch. Apologies for any inconvenience this might cause, but we are working hard to work more efficiently and make applying for grants easier and quicker.

The Wales in London Philanthropic Fund has been created in the spirit of the core purpose of the Wales in London organisation, which is to provide a bridge between Wales and London – and indeed further afield.

It supports enterprising students and people at the beginning of their careers to achieve their ambitions. For example it will support costs associated with being a student, scholarships, business bursaries, work experience/career development.

Grants Available

Individuals can apply for grants of between £500 and £1,250

Who can apply?

  • Young people who were born and/or educated in Wales, for whom a scholarship/bursary will enable them to develop their education, learning, business and career skills, and will broaden their horizons in London or outside Wales

It is expected that successful applicants will pledge to ‘give back’, now or in the future, to the Wales in London Philanthropic Fund or indeed to society more generally.  For example giving pro bono support, charitable donations, fundraising activities, volunteering etc., as forms of philanthropic giving.

Successful applicants may be invited to attend and present at Community Foundation Wales or Wales in London events within the year following receipt of funding, to update the donors on how the grant has contributed towards their development.  Community Foundation Wales will also expect a monitoring report, and would greatly appreciate updates from beneficiaries so we can gauge the longer-term impact of our grants.
