We like to see that applicants have considered a range of funding avenues; this could include contributions from your Mess funds, personal contributions paid by personnel or money raised through your own fundraising activity.

In an ideal world at least 25 per cent (or more) of your total cost of your application would be covered by your own streams, and if we are able to, we will fund the remaining amount.

It is important that you are able to demonstrate that you are making a contribution from your own funds; if a contribution of 25 per cent or more is not possible, please highlight this in your application so we can give this further consideration.
