Individuals applying for grants from The Barakat Trust need to identify an institution to which grant monies can be transferred on their behalf. The Trust cannot make transfers to personal bank accounts, but is strongly committed to the support of individual professional development and projects led by individuals.


The awards have different values, ranging from GBP £1,500 to £50,000.


There is a separate application form for each category. You will need to download the application form in Microsoft Word for the category of award you intend to apply to on the website.
