The Waterloo Foundation (TWF): Inviting applications for ‘Child Development Fund’.

Funding brief: The Waterloo Foundation is delighted to announce our deadlines for the Child Development Fund 2018.

They are currently inviting applications for research funding into Motor Impairments or Diet and/or the microbiome in relation to child development outcomes (cognitive/ emotional/psychological) and look forward to supporting projects that complement their research interests in these areas. As always they remain particularly interested in research related to neurodevelopmental disorders and their co-occurrence.

TWF is interested in the psychological and behavioral development of our children, and particularly in certain neurodevelopmental conditions and the factors that influence them.  To that end they fund:
● Research, as a main priority.

They also fund some non-research projects, including
● Dissemination of research. And to a lesser extent
● Intervention projects.

Within our Child Development programme they provide grants for research projects and for practical projects.  There are separate guidelines for how to apply for funding depending on whether your application is for research or a practical project.

If you are interested in applying to us, they encourage you to consider setting up a Google alert for our website ( At times it is necessary to make an unexpected change and we would hate for you to miss an opportunity because you were unaware of it.

● Research projects
● Practical projects

Funding limit:
Research projects – application: Levels of funding are typically between £40,000 and £60,000 per research project. They support a wide range of projects, differing by research question, methodology, and existing funding. For example, they might support pilot data collection, to help you strengthen later proposals for substantial research grants from other, larger research funders, and clear pipelines for future work strengthen such proposals. They might support studentships, although generally do so as a matched-funder, and we might support an entire research project. They appreciate cost-effectiveness, and occasions where a small contribution from us yields much.
● Practical projects – Application: Awards for practical projects are usually up to £10,000, although applications for larger grants will be considered in special circumstances.
