Making An Application

Fife Environment Trust currently offers two levels of funding support to eligible organisations and projects. 

Small Grants Scheme

Applicants can apply for between £500 and £10,000 up to a maximum intervention rate of 90% of total eligible costs. Please note that the total cost of the project must be no more than £10,000 (excluding VAT). Applications to the small grants scheme can be made at any time as there are no submission deadlines.

Large Grants Scheme

Applicants can apply for between £10,000 and £50,000 up to a maximum intervention rate of 75% of total eligible costs. Submission deadlines for applications to the large grants scheme are twice per annum, at the end of March and the end of September. Applications submitted in March are considered by the Board of Directors every May and applications submitted in September are considered every November.

Please click on the links at the bottom of the page to download the relevant application form. It should be noted that whilst the same questions are asked on both application forms, the level of detail required as answers is proportionate to the level of funding sought from the Trust.
