A to Z of funding (G)


Grants in kind

Occasionally grants are given in the form of vouchers or are paid directly to a shop or store in the form of credit to enable the applicant to obtain food, clothing or other prearranged items.

More commonly, especially with disability aids or other technical equipment, the charity will either give the equipment itself to the applicant (rather than the money) or loan it free of charge or at a low rental as long as the applicant needs it. More common items, such as telephones, can also be given as equipment because the charity can get better trade terms than the individual.

The Grants Register

This publication produced by Macmillan lists over 3,500 potential sources of funding for postgraduate students worldwide. This guide is quite expensive (£125), so its probably worth visiting a reference library or a careers service to see a copy.
