Increasingly, donors are becoming more specific about how the British Lung Foundation uses the funding they give us for research. Often, this means that funding must be used to support research into a specific disease area. As a consequence, the opportunity to offer grants for research into 'any' lung disease area, as chosen by the applicant, is becoming increasingly rare.
In addition to this, it is very difficult to predict a timetable for availability of new funding for research grants and whether or not disease-specific restrictions may apply.
Therefore, the British Lung Foundation offers research grants as-and-when appropriate funding is secured and the full terms of their use are known. Please check the ‘grants available’ section of our website on a regular basis to keep up to date with research funding opportunities from the BLF.
